That we might become acquainted with His divine character and life, Jesus took our nature and dwelt among us. (COL17.1) Tender, compassionate, sympathetic, ever considerate of others, He represented the character of God. (SD21.5) The importance of this particular aspect of Jesus’ multi- faceted mission lies in the fact that it is our knowledge of God’s character, above all else, that draws us into His arms and that persuades us to open our hearts to Him. In simple terms, the more we discover of His wondrous persona, the more we will be inclined to allow Him to live in our hearts and hand Him the reins of our life.
