Mission began in the nature, the very heart, of God long before Genesis 1 vs 1. God had and has a 'dream" which he is working out in reality, and we are all part of it. getting involved in mission is in fact engaging in the fulfillment of God's dream. Mission is about God, not about me. Discipleship is about joining ourselves to Christ and becoming enveloped into His plan and His work. The Bible speaks of God's mission from Genesis 1 all the way through to Revelation 22.
In order that the Son of God might come in humanity to be our substitute, God needed human parents to adopt and raise His child. He chose Mary and Joseph.
We tend to focus on the lovely positive aspects of the Chrismas story and they are wonderful. But there is another side to it. The incarnation of Christ was a beachhead of God's assault on evil, and it began the final battle against sin.
