Welcome to Hive Resources! The final post in my three-part series on the Incarnation and what it proves to the world about God’s love is over at Desiring Virtue today! But before you check it out, be sure to enter to win the resource I highlighted in this series – On The Incarnation by St. Athanasius!
I think Alexander Pope got it wrong.
To err is not human – at least not based on the Divine Playwright’s original script.
The meaning of humanity is never more reticent than at Christmas, when we focus on the one Person who took on flesh and demonstrated what true humanity looks like.
The incarnation shows us:
- Evidence of God’s good character. (The Incarnation speaks to who God is).
- Evidence of God’s role as Creator! (The Incarnation speaks to what God does).
- And finally, evidence of God’s purpose in your life. (The incarnation speaks to why God does what he does).
The Christmas story, then, is about more than a miraculous birth and a back-stage pass into heaven. It’s the story of a Good God who created a good world that became corrupted by sin. It’s the story of a Good God who is at work in his creation to restore it back to its original state.
The Christmas story is about what you’re doing here on earth and how God is at work in your life for his glory.
So, how does the incarnation prove that God is at work in our lives?
