Here is a wonderful quote from C.S. Lewis about importance of understanding our humanity in the context of God’s saving work.
“It is not an abstraction called Humanity that is to be saved. It is you… your soul, and in some sense yet to be understood, even your body, that was made for the high and holy place. All that you are… every fold and crease of your indiviuality was devised from all eternity to fit God as a glove fits a hand. All that intimate particularity which you can hardly grasp yourself, much less communicate to your fellow creatures, is no mystery to Him. He madce those ins and outs that He might fill them. Then He gave your soul so curious a life because it is the key designed to unlock that door, of all the myriad doors in Him.”
Lewis at his best!
