The Son of the Most High

We are so accustomed  to sin  that it is the norm  for us  —  and we have trouble thinking  out-of-the-box.     As King David explained  in Psalm 51:5,

Behold,  I was brought forth  in iniquity,
And in sin  my mother  conceived me.

In other words,  we are all  born sinners  and are totally unable  to change  that fact.     That is why  it is difficult  to understand the birth  of Jesus,  who is sinless.     He is different  from any of us  —  even though  He is a true man,  He is also true God.     When the angel Gabriel  told the virgin Mary  that she would bear the Savior,  in Luke 1:31-32,  he said,

And behold,  you will conceive  in your womb  and bear a son,  and you shall name Him Jesus.     He will be great  and will be called the Son  of the Most High.

Puzzled,  Mary wondered  how that could be.     It was  not natural.     Gabriel answered  in Luke 1:35,

The Holy Spirit  will come  upon you,  and the power  of the Most High  will overshadow you;  and for that reason  the holy Child  shall be called  the Son  of God.

That was an amazing,  supernatural thing.     All things are possible  with God  —  and nothing is impossible  for Him.     God had promised  this Savior  from sin,  and He was keeping His promise  through this miracle.     Just as it is impossible  for us to understand  how God was able  to just speak  and create everything  in this creation  —  it is impossible  for anyone  to honestly understand  how God  did this miracle  in bringing about  our Savior, Christ Jesus.

So,  like Mary,  we are  to simply accept  the wonders  of God  by faith.     As Mary believed  and pondered  God’s grace,  we too,  are to believe  and think about God’s grace  in our need  for eternal salvation  through faith.

Praising God  as Mary did,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  in all our troubles,  it is good  to know  that all things  are possible  with You.”

Love,
Margaret
