Merry Christmas from all of us at Sent Ones Unlimited to you and your family! This Christmas, remember that there is nothing so “wonder-full” to contemplate as the incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ. The glory of God is clearly seen in the incarnation.
By glory, we don’t mean pomp and parade, but humility and surrender. Athanasius sums it up well by saying, “The Lord did not come to make a display. He came to heal and to teach suffering men.”
Later on, Augustine captures it too, saying, “Man’s maker was made man that He, Ruler of the stars, might nurse at His mother’s breast; that the Bread might hunger, the Fountain thirst, the Light sleep, the Way be tired on its journey; that Truth might be accused of false witnesses, the Teacher be beaten with whips, the Foundation be suspended on wood; that Strength might grow weak; that the Healer might be wounded; that Life might die.”
As we contemplate the incarnation, we mustn’t forget the purpose of it all, that the Son of God became a man so that men and women might become sons and daughters of God. The Divine descended, so that clay could ascend. Jesus became the divine Son of God, so that we could be the sons of God divine.
Thank you for your generosity to Sent Ones Unlimited. Your seeds of love and faith have been planted in good soil. In 2016-2017, we ministered somewhere; in some church, conference, or revival, approximately 365 times—that’s an average of once every other day. Many are being saved, filled, touched, healed, and delivered because of your giving. Your continued generosity will continue to help make our itinerant gospel ministry a possibility.
We pray you have a “wonder-full” Christmas as you celebrate Christ’s incarnation!
In Christ’s Love, Nathanael & Michelle Wolf
