Jesus came to remind us who we are – creatures made in the image of God – and show us what it means to BE creatures made in the image of God. If God is a Trinity of persons who are so interrelated in love that they are one God together, then we are to exist as persons who are so interrelated in love that we are one humanity together! Jesus commanded his disciples to love one another as he had loved them. Love one another as God has loved you! Love each other as the persons of the Trinity love each other! One of the ways that Jesus saved the world – and is saving it still – is by reminding us – giving us the mind of Christ – so that we remember that we are meant to be in loving relationship with God and with each other! Sin separates us from God and each other. Being in a sinful state, then, is against our nature, since we were created to be in communion with God and each other – NOT separate from God and each other.
