When Jesus came to this earth, he came to be the true and better Israel that Israel failed to be, and he came to be true and better human that we all have failed to be. And this is not just a side note about what Jesus did, this is at the heart of his rescue mission. The kind of Savior we need is not one who can just get us out of trouble, but we need a Savior who can walk in our shoes, and go through all that we go through, and perfectly trust God and always do what he says and truly love others even when it’s hard, and then take all of that righteousness, and all of his power, and give it to us. . . . .
