The believer’s unity with Christ is an essential, yet often overlooked topic that is meant to provide us with a strong sense of assurance and hope in this life. Jesus came to earth and took on the very nature of a man. He was born as a helpless baby and spent His early years navigating the ups and downs of childhood and adolescence. He worked alongside his father, Joseph, and no doubt enjoyed the company of friends and companions in His hometown of Nazareth. But as He reached the age of 30, Jesus began His earthly ministry, fulfilling the will of His heavenly Father. Jesus became a man so that He might one day complete the task given to Him by His Father from before the foundation of the world. Jesus came to live as a man, but more importantly, so that He might die in the place of sinful men. And because He lived in perfect obedience to His Father we are able to live to righteousness.
