The incarnation of man

We all know that One reason Jesus became flesh was to show us that He really understood us, hence He is qualified to be a priest.

Yet in our salvation, we are invited to be drawn into His life, particularly through His earthly life.

Thus what must motivate us in our actions is not so much 'what do I need to do to be like Jesus' or WWJD in each and every situation, but rather how can I know Jesus more deeply and intimately, in particular, how can I experience the Father's love for me in and through Christ.

So the church is invited to become like the true man, born again in the flesh if you like, that we may participate in the divine nature even when in the flesh, and there is no other means than to imitate Christ.
