September 24, 2012: What Humanity Should Look Like

Robert E. Webber

To participate in God’s story is to live a transformed life, a life that brings glimpses of the ultimate transformation of all creation. . . . Jesus, the incarnate Word, is the only man who “got it right.” In Jesus God shows us what humanity should look like, for he reversed the disobedience of the first Adam . . . and gave us in his life the true image of a restored humanity. Jesus’s life was a perfect participation in God.
