God’s purpose for us is revealed through our bodies. Although the contemporary world often denies that we have any limits, our bodies reveal the truth that we all have needs, limits, and abilities which show us how to live with purpose. Human limits point to our need for God Who is Love. Jesus willingly took on human limits even though He is God. His sacrifice on the Cross is the ultimate limit and reveals the greatest gift of His love.
