It is through the God-man that mankind attains the joy of of being joined to the Divine, and it is through association with the Ideal Man that defective human nature becomes pure and recovers its rectitude. The Son of God and Son of Man is our only hope for the reversal of our Fall and for our assured welfare in the future. God the Father sent him to us, God the Son fulfilled our failed obedience on our behalf and cancelled the consequences of our vagrancy from God and breach in fellowship, and God the Holy Spirit performs the renovation of our spirits that renders us compatible with our Maker, now our beloved Redeemer.
