When Heaven Touched Earth: The Incarnation of Jesus

Unbelievers tend to have a distorted view of God. They often fail to see His goodness towards us humans and focus on the things they don’t like.

In effect, they have created a god in their image. However, the God of the Bible is different. As the Apostle Paul states in his letter to Titus (Tit. 3:4-5, NIV):

But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy.”

This is what we celebrate at Easter. God became flesh to redeem His fallen image.
