Christians proclaim the unthinkable. We believe that God became a man, the man Jesus Christ. God, who cannot suffer and die, becomes a man so that he can do the incomprehensible: the God-man dies.
In his Son Jesus Christ, the God of life and holiness faces the reality of death and sin.
What kind of God are we talking about here? He becomes a man not merely so that we might better understand his teachings, but that he might bring reconciliation. He dies that he might overcome sin and death.
Question for Reflection
- Do you see just how scandalous God’s love is for His people?
