Why Death Instead of Life?

Why do we focus so much on Christ’s death?  You see signs like “He died so you can live”, but what about His life?  The Gospel is about how Jesus lived, how He loved, and how He cared.  His death is about our reconciliation to God.  His life is about what we should do about it.  No one says we need to follow Martin Luther King Jr.’s example because he died.  What made Martin Luther King great in death, was how much greater his life was.  So, next time you catch somebody saying “Jesus died for you” remind them that He lived for them first.  And that life showed us so much more about how to fill the void in the life around us than His death did.
