When the God-Man Walked Among Us

Artwork for Growing Deep in the Christian Life: Returning to Our Roots

What an event it was! The second member of the Godhead came to earth as a tiny baby in Bethlehem. God became man. This is commonly referred to as the doctrine of the incarnation. In the words of the Apostle John, “The Word became flesh, and dwelt among us” (John 1:14).

Think about that for a while. Imagine what it must have been like to see Him, walk with Him, watch Him work, and hear His words. Hopefully you'll gain a greater appreciation for His uniqueness—deity and humanity dwelling in one person. Our goal is not simply to glean theological facts from Scripture but also to bow before Jesus, as Thomas did, and exclaim, “My Lord and my God!” (John 20:28).
