The Good News of Christmas

by Dan Cruver Published Dec 13, 2012

“When [God the] Son became incarnate, communion with God became incarnate, and with his incarnation perfect obedience permanently entered the human race in him. In the incarnate Son, communion with the Father and perfect obedience to his holy will finally burst into the far country of our alienation from the Father. Through the incarnation, Jesus (fully God and fully man in his one Person) became not merely the means but the place—the locale—where communion with and obedience to God happen in all their unimaginable fullness. It is only in the Person of Christ that God and man meet in loving communion. The understated good news of the gospel is that the humanity of Jesus has become our communion with and obedience to his Father. Only in Jesus can true radical obedience and unending communion be found” (Reclaiming Adoption: Missional Living Through the Rediscovery of Abba Father, 43; emphasis mine).
