Enters Into Our Lives

“The Christian notion of incarnation is holistic and integrative. Jesus Christ came into the world as a whole, integrated person -- not as a ‘pretend’ person... Moreover, he was involved in all of life, not just its so-called ‘sacred’ aspects. The primary theological significance of this holistic and integrative involvement is not just to qualify him as the Second Adam and make retribution for our fragmented relationship to God. Rather, it is in and by such involvement that God enters into our lives and we into God’s.”
