Christmas Mission

We are told of Jesus' mission in the Old and New Testaments. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.John 1:10-13 Some rejected Him. - the world and His own people. Some received Him. - those who believed became children of God.

In Isaiah 40:3 we see the prophesy of Jesus' mission and John the Baptist. A voice of one calling: “In the wilderness prepare the way for the Lord; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. (also quoted in Mark 1:3)

Do not be confused about Jesus's mission.  For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. - John 3:17

An impossible mission for a mere man. but with God nothing is impossible. Amen?
