The Incarnation is Our Atonement


The Incarnation, when God became man,
is the atonement—the at·one·ment. For in Christ, 
God has become one with all humankind.
The Cross and Resurrection
flow inevitably from that.

Christ's Incarnation and Our Life


The Incarnation means that 
Christ did not die on the cross simply instead of us 
but that he died as us. His death was our death 
so that his life is now our life.

I’ve seen what both can do.
I will choose prayer.
Every time.
