Essential Vocabulary of Faith: Intervention

Intervention:  

That God is involved in our lives, and always has been; that he has intervened throughout history, both indirectly and at times directly; that he has communicated through prophets, visions and dreams, inspired speakers and writers, and anointed leaders; that his fullest and paramount intervention was becoming one of us, a human being, whom we know as Jesus Christ.  God’s ultimate intervention was Jesus’ death and resurrection to new life which overcame the power of sin and death for all of us. He did this because He loves us, desires our best, and wants to be in relationship with us.
