Jesus Came to Be the Savior of the World
We are created in God’s likeness and He designed us to live and operate as an extension of who He is and what He does. Because of Adam’s sin, however, our identity as a child of God was tainted and our ability to live in unity with Him was severely weakened. Jesus, therefore, came to be the savior of the world, which enabled our identity (our ability to be like God and work alongside Him) to be restored and so now we are able to walk with God in unity once again.
1 John 4:14
