All the way until the peak moment of dying on the cross, Jesus lived as an incarnation of God, directly practicing and revealing God’s love. His life was a suffering course all along which he fought with Satan. But why did God let Satan take his life on the cross? It is not because God did not love Jesus. God loved Jesus, and do you know how much He loved him? You should know that it is after overcoming death that you receive the highest love of God. Hence, you should have an ardent heart that you can even go over the hill of death in order to receive the love of Jesus, who came to represent God.
