Man used to have a close communion with God, but that communion was destroyed they disobeyed the divine command given by God in the garden of Eden. That sin dragged all humanity with it and from that scenario a wall between God and man was created. Would everything stay like this? Would the failure of a man keep us chained in sin forever? In no way, because Christ descended and dwelt among us and overcame sin and death to give us eternal salvation.
It is good that we understand this that “the Word became flesh.” Let’s read a few verses in the book of John:
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was with God in the beginning.
3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.
5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
