“When he appeared in human form, he humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross” (Philippians 2:7, 8).
Jesus' life was filled with purpose right from the start. He was born to restore the broken relationship humans had with God. From the very beginning, when Adam and Eve disobeyed God, God had a plan about how to make things right. Jesus’ birth in a stable, His life of service, His death on a cross and His resurrection was that plan.
