As we look to Easter observance in a few days, my thoughts go to the significance of what our Savior has done for us. Yes, he died and was resurrected for our eternal salvation, but he also lived every day of his life on earth for us too. From the humiliation of being a helpless baby, nursing at Mary’s breast, wearing whatever they used for diapers back then, to being a curious toddler learning to walk to hormone-charged teenager, he experienced it all. He was fully human as well as fully divine. We don’t know much about his growing-up years, but we know he learned from what he suffered during that time. He was fully human. He bled when he scraped his knee. He learned obedience. He faced all the temptations we all face, yet for our sake, lived without sinning even once.
