God the Father could not think of a greater or nobler role for His Son than to send Him on a mission of rescue. The Son was sent to serve, to suffer, to ascend to Heaven, and to be rewarded with His reign over the universe and the church. We too are called to participate in the family business of rescue, and to consciously choose to replicate Christ’s ministry in our lives. As daughters and sons of God, we have been sent. We are to choose to serve and to suffer. We will ascend in the rapture, and be rewarded by participating in Christ’s reign. God could not think of a greater or nobler role for us than to participate in Christ’s life pattern. This life pattern gives overall meaning to our lives.
