Showing God in action in and through His people.
Jesus was fully God and fully human, Jesus lived among us and demonstrated through His life and teachings just how we are supposed to live. He was the Word of God made flesh. Then, on the cross where men crucified Him, He paid the penalty for our sins. He took on our punishment so that we might be spared to enjoy eternal life and an intimate relationship with Him. He rose from the dead as the "first fruit" of this new order, just as we, too, will rise again.
Then something incredible and marvelous happened. When Jesus returned to heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father, He made a way to remain among us as long as we live on this earth. He released the Holy Spirit to come and live inside each one of His followers. In that way, we have the mind and the spirit of God within us.
That is why Jesus told His disciples that it was better for them that He leave this world. They had only enjoyed His presence among them physically. Now and for all time, He is among us in the deepest and most powerful way, living within us. We have Jesus' counsel, comfort, and friendship with us wherever we go, and no one can ever take it away. The Bible tells us this is a preview, a foretaste, of the wonderful fellowship that lies ahead of us when we join Him in eternity.
