One of the major aspects of Christian witness in our increasingly secular, pluralist and postmodern world is that of an authentic, embodied Christian existence which reflects itself in concrete manifestations of forgiveness, reconciliation, welcome, hope and love – as shown in the incarnation, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This paper offers a biblical/Pauline exploration of this crucial element of Christian witness and argues that the practice of genuine love is both an integral part of the gospel and a concrete manifestation or embodiment of the gospel in tangible life situations. It shows that “the story of Christ” represents the ground for, and the possibility of, the ongoing incarnation of the gospel – by their being incorporated into the same story of Christ and by their participation “in Christ,” Christians become active participants in God’s story of the redemption of the world.
