Word Made Flesh The Purpose of the Incarnation About this Life Night The Incarnation is the mystery of God becoming man; as it states in the Nicene Creed, “For us men and for our salvation He came down from heaven.” The night will begin with a game similar to charades that will transition into the teaching emphasizing the four purposes for the Incarnation. The night will utilize the symbol of a ladder to show that God descended from the heavens to take on human nature. As a result of the Incarnation, humanity can now ascend this ladder to gain eternal life. In this world Christians continue to encounter the Incarnation in and through the Eucharist; the Incarnate God in our world today. After a time of discussion in small groups, the teens will spend time with the Word Made Flesh in Eucharistic adoration. The night will close with prayer and benediction. Goal of This Night The goal of this Life Night is to help the teens understand why the Word became flesh and how the plan of salvation began well before the Son of God came to earth. The teens will have an opportunity to respond to this Good News and invite the Word Made Flesh deeper into their hearts through prayer.
