Jesus’ Passion achieved a fitting sacrifice to God and gave us humans salvation. Why did Jesus have to become man and die? To give us life. But why did Jesus have to save us by the Cross? God didn’t have to use the Cross, but He found it fitting. From the Cross, we can learn God’s love, the horror of sin, and how to accept suffering. God shows us love through the language of sacrifice; by taking on the consequences of sin, we are reminded not to take Jesus’s sacrifice lightly; Jesus’ sacrifice gives meaning to our sufferings and allows us to join them with His sufferings. Jesus saved us by His Passion, death, and Resurrection – as God, His sacrifice has infinite value; as man, He truly represents us. Jesus is victorious over death and sin – these are inseparable.
