It’s All About Jesus
Jesus humbled Himself, and took on mortality. As a member of the human family, He was mortal; but as a God. He was the fountain of life to the world. He would, in His divine person, ever have withstood the advances of death, and refused to come under its dominion; but He voluntarily laid down His life, that in so doing He might give life and bring immortality to light. He bore the sins of the world, and endured the penalty, which rolled like a mountain upon His divine soul. He yielded up His life a sacrifice, that man should not eternally die. He died, not through being compelled to die, but by His own free will. “And now, O Father, glorify me with thine own self, with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.” John 17:5.
