God knew sending His Son was going to be costly, but He did it anyway. And He didn’t do it to keep us from escaping hell; that along with eternal life are important, incredible gifts, but they’re perks. What God intended was for us to have a personal, interactive relationship with Jesus. Through this, He can bridge the ethnic conflict, tribalism, and ethnocentricity that divides His creation.
People at odds with each other are looking for ways to have unity and peace. Only God through Jesus Christ can bring what humanity longs for. Political and religious leaders can’t do it.
The effect of God’s love through His people is unity from diversity.
