What Jesus Did is Far More Important

  I think this quote is from someone from the White Horse Inn, but I don't know who. I thought it was a good thought, though.
"There is a world of difference between having a role model whose example we fall short of ever reproducing and having yourself "killed" and recreated as branches of the Tree of Life. Doing what Jesus did is different from bearing fruit of Christ's righteous life. In fact, the most important things that Jesus did cannot be duplicated.
Because He fulfilled the law in our place, bore our curse, and was raised in glory to take his throne at the Father's right hand, we can have a relationship with Him-and with the Father-that is far more intimate than the relationship of a devotee to a guru, a student to a teacher, or a follower to a master."
