The Example of the Cross
The cross of Christ saves us in that Jesus demonstrates that human obedience to the way of God defeats Satan and Sin. Jesus, apart from us, frees us from bondage; and now free, we have the capacity to obey him: rather than “grasping” to become like God, we “let go” to descend as a humble servant.
