"That Holy Thing"

Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. Luke 1:34-35




It was a miraculous conception. Mary was His mother, but God was His father. As we heard in our sermon Sunday, this Child was holy in every sense of the word. He always was the Son of God, but was given a body of flesh through His mother's side. All of this the work of the Holy Spirit of God so that the incarnation of Jesus was like no other event that ever occurred. And the best part of it is that this Child, the Son of God, who became as one of us in the flesh, yet without sin, went on to humble Himself to the fullest extent by dying on the cross for those who are sinners. So, my dear Christian friends, is it no wonder that we celebrate this birth? And if you happen to be someone who comes to visit here and don't know the Christ of Christmas, come to Him today and rejoice in Him, whether you celebrate the holiday itself or not.



Merry Christmas to all and a blessed holiday season to you and your family!

If there were no Virgin Birth there would be no Savior who bore our sins and redemmed us. But there was and HE DID!!!! Praise God as we celebrate Christ-Mass. Merry Christmas to you and yours, Maxine.

What an amazing gift from God...sending His perfect son, our Lord Jesus, out of the Glory of Heaven, to come to this sin-filled world that he might atone for the sins of His people. Truly, it IS a gift worth celebrating...every day of the year.

Merry Christmas!

Love,
Patti
