We tend to compartmentalize different aspects of our lives, but in reality to be Christian is to be whole. To be Christian is to become truly human. As believers, we receive all of Christ, not just part of him. Christ has become a new human. Humanity was not just a shell Christ put on to satisfy the Father, humanity was what Christ voluntarily put on to satisfy himself and the Father. He did endure the suffering and pain that we too endure, but he endured it because by doing so he taught us that humanity is not to be despised. To be Christian is to be truly human as Christ was truly human. We refashion our lives because by doing so we become more like the Christ who was fashioned as man for us and for our salvation.
Prayer: We bless you, Jesus Christ, for becoming the true human; the true and final Adam, Amen.
