Deteriorating or developing?

There are two ways of thinking about life and death. The Little Black Book, Six-minute meditations on the Passion according to John puts it this way:

"One is to picture myself walking down a hill, gradually headed for the bottom where death awaits us. Another is to picture myself like a child in a mother's womb, moving gradually towards birth into a new and wider life." (2007, Diocese of Saginaw)

Which do you think was the perspective of Jesus as he lived and died for your sake?

PROCLAIM the good news; HEAL the sick and oppressed; BRING JUSTICE
~ Luke 4:16-20

Anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing (John 14:12)
~ Jesus
