Scripture - John 17:4 (Jesus is busy praying to His Father) "I have brought You glory on earth by completing the work You gave Me to do." Usualy when we think about jesus coming to earth, we immediately think of His death on the cross for our sins to be forgiven, and that is right. However, Jesus prayed these words before His death on the cross. Fro these words of Jesus it is clear that He did not come to earth only to die for us, but to be an example for us. He came to teach us how someone should live If they declare that they love God. All that Jesus did on earth, He did to glorify His Father, because He loves Him. Thus He showed us how to express our love for our heavenly Father. All that we do should be done to the glory of God. This is not always easy, and God knows that, therefore jesus died that we may forgiven of our sins and shortcommings. Our walk towards God is a growth process and only when with God will we have reached the fullness that we are striving for. In the meantime we are working with the help of our Father to become better at glorifying Him, we become more rightious as God is working in us to perfect us. Have faith and know this; the more you know God, the more you love Him. Blessings

Thanks for sharing this with all of us again. I hope more people take the time to read and respond to them. I noticed I was the only responder to one of them a while ago.
