I am reminded that today we celebrate in a particular way that God left the comfort of heaven to come to earth and identify with us. When Jesus said to his disciples “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you” (John 20:21 NIV), he gave us the same kind of “reach out beyond” mission that his Father had given him. The Christmas story is a missions story – one of God reaching beyond, reaching out and sending emissaries to do that on his behalf. We are the recipients of that mission – that reaching out.
We wish all of you the most blessed Christmas season and a new year full of the blessings of our God who sends.
Dayle and I will be moving to a new place in the new year. We will be going to Ghana – the city of Accra to be exact. We hope to do that in the spirit that Jesus intended with his words “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you”.
