Wow! Thank you to everyone who has given an end of the year gift to Adore Ministries. We are closing out this year with very grateful hearts. There is still a bit of time left in 2016 to come alongside our missionaries! If you haven't yet, please consider investing in all that's to come in 2017. Link in profile.

Why did God become man? To save us from our sins, yes. But also from hatred. And fear. He became man to prove God’s raging love for us and to prove once and for all that man was made for more than the the material stuff and the ego, that man was created for love. He was fully God and fully man. And by fully man, we mean the fullness of man. The ultimate man. The greatest man. I used to hear that teaching and think, yes, of course He was the ultimate man, because He also happened to be the second person of the Trinity! Today, I think I understand it a bit different. See, I’m starting to see Jesus, not merely as some mythology of a man-god sent down from the clouds to shield me and my wretched self from a judgmental Father ready to strike. I’m starting to see him as a human, as a mix of flesh and blood and guts and breath and life and joy. The ultimate man, who stepped right down into the mess and pissed off the world’s most violent and oppressive people on the planet. A man who knows what it’s like to be born, to be alone, to love, to mourn and to be tortured in the town square. He could’ve done it any other way. But He had to bring the message, the truth, the very Word right to our living rooms and to our pubs. “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us,” in other words THAT flesh revealed THAT Word. The very Word of God: I am here. You are loved. Follow me.Let us prepare the way in our hearts this Christmas, to accept that we are not alone, that we are loved as we are, and that by following Jesus’ life of love and preference for the least the oppressed and the poor, that we too shall be guided into the way of peace. #letusadorehim :: Art by @scottthepainter@ennie4
