The Resurrection: Making All Things New

One of the things I think about, when pondering the infinite mysteries of the Resurrection of Christ is how it answers the question of why would God leave being God and take upon our human nature. Christ was like us in all things but sin. Yet, he became sin to allow us to be adopted sons and daughters of the Father, and his brother.  This is what it means to love others as Jesus has loved us. Not one of us would leave being a human being to become an animal, such as a golden lab in order to allow all animals to go to Heaven.  Christ did that for us. All we can say is:

Praise be to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit now and forever. The God who is, who was, and who is to come at the end of the ages. Amen and Amen. –Cistercian doxology
