The New Normal

December 4, 2016

rev. Steve DeNeff - Matthew 1:18-23; Romans 12:1-2.  The first and most obvious implication of the incarnation is what it means for human flesh. Contrary to the idea that to “err is human,” the incarnation declares it is not, for even in his humanity, he did not sin. Indeed, the more we sin, the less human we become. It is not normal to sin, and it never was. This message will call us to a new normal, “The humanity of Christ,” and encourage us to live with some things we keep trying to get rid of, and to get rid of other things we seem too happy to live with. The outcome here is a call to embrace our humanity – all of it – with a commitment to holy living.
