2 Corinthians 5:15
And he died for all, that those who live might live no longer for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.
Some people have the notion that Christian belief in the Incarnation is a specimen of human arrogance, much as many people think that calling human beings creatures “in the image and likeness of God” is just a bit of primitive pride. But the reality is that God became man, not because there was something specially wonderful about us, but because Love was drawn to our desperately sick and evil race out of sheer love. He became human, not in order to affirm us in our okayness, but because it was the only way he could do what was necessary: die for our sake.
