No one had ever seen God. And so, Jesus Christ came to earth to make the Father known, by loving others at the cross. However, there is a problem with this plan – he is no longer on the earth making the Father known. And so, his brothers and sisters (see John 20:17) now have the mission of making the Father known to the world (see John 20:21). However, there is also a problem with this plan – our hearts don’t like loving others in a cross-like way. And so, Jesus sends the Holy Spirit to reminds us that “In him was life” (see John 1:4).
