The Mystery of the Gospel

Christ is the image of the invisible God,
in whom all the fullness of divinity dwells
in bodily form, and in whom we are made 
complete and become partakers
of the divine nature.

Whatever is True of Christ

The Incarnation means that whatever is true of Christ in his humanity is true of us in ours. But it also means that we partake of his divinity and become by grace what Christ is by nature.

There is No Contest

When the brokenness of sin meets
the faithfulness of Christ?
No contest.

When the power of death meets
the life of Christ?
No contest.

Sin and death were doomed by the Incarnation,
when God became one with us.

Not Moralism but New Life

Christ did not come
to institute a new moralism
but to give us New Life.

Christ is God's Yes and Our Yes

Christ is not only God’s Yes to us,
He is also our Yes to God.

The Beginning of Christian Theology

Christian theology does not begin
with philosophy or theological abstraction but
with the concrete revelation of God
in Jesus Christ through
the Holy Spirit.
