Why The Incarnation?

John 1:14
Our heavenly Father yearned through the centuries and the rise and fall of civilizations to redeem His needy people. He never ceased to reach out to His prodigal family. He did this in every way possible: through the glories of His creation, through the immeasurable gifts he gave them, through the words of prophets and teachers. He dispatched His servants with countless messages that said the same thing in ten thousand ways: “Come home! Come home! You are loved now and forever.” In the end and at last, in the fullness of time, God Himself made the journey. He poured His Godhead into flesh and blood and visited the earth as a man. He walked among us—a King in disguise, the Creator among His creatures. He entered our world through a doorway called Bethlehem, and our world was changed forever.
