196: Christmas and the Incarnation

Imagine Jesus being born today, in our times. Do you think he’d be received as God’s own son? Would the world believe… would you?

This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, Caesar and Heath celebrate their second annual Christmas episode, as they dive deep into the Incarnation and what it means for us today.

It’s crazy to think that we get so lost in the consumerism of Christmas, even as Christians, that we forget about the magnitude of God becoming man. God putting on flesh.

This year, let’s recapture the essence of the Incarnation as we are now the flesh that is wrapped around God’s Spirit!

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • What Jesus’ name(s) teach us about the Incarnation.
  • How Jesus’ incarnation is a model for how we “go” into the world and make disciples.
  • That we have the exact same Spirit of God dwelling in us as Jesus. (This is huge!)
  • Ways we can make this a special Christmas for those whose burdens we seek to bear.

Get started here…

From this episode:

“We now know that we have been taken up and borne in the humanity of Jesus, and therefore that new nature we now enjoy means that we too must bear the sins and sorrows of others. The incarnate Lord makes his followers the brothers of all mankind.”  ― Dietrich Bonhoeffer
