The Missionary


He always knew he would come to this land.

The trip was planned with a very unique mission in mind. Arrangements were made with precise accuracy. He knew exactly what his mission was and what the outcome would be. His arrival was quite different from all other missionaries.

This missionary was born for this purpose.

He knew what his being here would accomplish. He didn’t really have to learn the native language. He already knew it. He was aware from afar how things
worked here, but now he had the chance to experience it first hand.

Certain things he did have to get used to.  He felt the dirt on his feet.  He had to get accustomed to the feel of heaviness of a human body.  Companionship added to his experiences.  Some people hated him, which was foreign to this missionary when he was at home. They hated him enough to put him to death. That was a totally unique experience for him.

That, and carrying everyone else’s sin.

Each one of us who have been saved through this One missionary ought to feel humbled that He chose us to follow in His footsteps.

There are lots of ways to tell people of this One, especially when we celebrate His birthday.

Thank you, Jesus.


And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, 
(and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,)
full of grace and truth.
John 1:14

  5. It's very difficult to imagine
    what Jesus went through as
    a human.
    Merry Christmas, Ladies!

  7. This is such an original title to add to familiar ones. I love picturing the King of Kings as the first missionary. A true image of God reaching out to man. Beautiful, Sunny. Thank you.
