We have just come to the end of the Christmas season (which actually starts, not ends, on Christmas, according to the liturgical calendar) and are entering the season of Epiphany… a time to continue reflecting on the meaning and significance of the incarnation.
Reflecting on the incarnation, Dallas Willard says this:
“The Incarnation is about seeing the greatness of Jesus. The little baby is just the beginning of the incarnation. It is a cosmic event that touches the whole universe. Incarnation is about Christ coming into the world of matter—flesh matter—and bringing a wonderful, ravishing reconciliation.”
You can listen to Willard teach on “Incarnation and Celebration” at his home church (Dec 2007) here.
