The Mission (An Advent Skit)
Before God created the world and everything in it, He had a plan. When the time was right He sent His Son to earth to complete a mission.
God's Mission: Save my children, reveal myself to them, show them my love, and fulfill prophecy.
And the Father said unto the Son:
Father Speaks to the Son:
"You will be born from the womb of a virgin woman that I have chosen, but you will not have the sin nature of mankind, for I am your Father. You will be 100% human, yet remain 100% God.
You will be their Christ and all of the prophecies concerning Christ you shall fulfill.
Our Spirit will be with you, He will teach you and guide you, and when you are old enough I will bring to your remembrance this mission for which I send you."
Father: "My Son, it is very important that you show them my love."
Son: "Yes Father, I will show them your love."
Father: "You will choose twelve men that will follow you as students, assistants and friends."
Son: "Yes Father, I understand and will do as you ask."
Father: "You will be hated and despised by many, but there will be a few who truly love you. You will have to suffer much my Son."
Son: "Yes Father, I understand that I must suffer."
Father: "You will be tempted just as they are tempted, in every way, but I will be with you and will give you strength, just as I will give them strength if they abide with us."
Son: "I will not fail my Father, for we must save them, because of our love for them."
Father: "Yes Son, because of our love for them, remember to show them our love."
Father: "As my Son you will live a pure and holy life, righteous to the end."
Son: "Father, you are holy and shall remain holy; I will not sin, but will obey you."
Father: "My precious Son, I love you, but there is no other way to save them from their sins; you must be beaten and die a torturous death on a cruel cross. When you are lifted up, I shall place all of the sins of the world upon you. You will become sin."
Son: Oh Father, becoming their sin, I will be separated from you!
Father: Yes my Son, but only for a short time. You are the only one who can do this, for there are none who are righteous upon the earth and sin must be punished. You will take the punishment that they deserve and I shall offer them my grace, which I will give to anyone who believes on you and places their faith and trust in you for their salvation.
Son: "Yes Father, I understand. This is the only way, and I too love them. I will go"
Father: "Remember to show them my love"
Father: "I give you the authority to lay down your life for them, and I give you the authority to take it back up again."
Father: "If you find that you cannot do this thing I ask of you, you have the ability to not do it".
Son: "I must go through with it."
Father: You will have whatever power you need on this mission available to you, but you must not use it for yourself. This will be a great temptation unto you.
Son: "I will only use our power for your glory Father, and I will be obedient even to the cruel death on a cross."
Father: "After you have died, you will rise to life on the third day, you will show yourself to your friends and to many witnesses who will testify of your resurrection."
Son: "I will obey my Father."
Father: "Once you have lived and died as a man, you will be able to sympathize with all of their heartaches and sorrows and suffering. You will be able to understand, and comfort them and lead them."
Son: "It is a wonderful plan."
Father: "Then you shall return to my side where you shall receive glory and honor, for you and I are one. And Son, remember to show them my love for them."
Son: "I will do all that you ask and command."
Father: "It is now time to go my Son, I love you, but I love them too. Remember to show them my love."
Son: I am ready Father, to go and show them our love."
Father: "GABRIEL! I want you to deliver another message..."
