Why a Virgin Birth? But how else is he to be the Son of God? Or should we ask why is it God’s will? But how else is God’s will to continue that no man perishes? To do something so incredible as to fulfill prophesy, prepare a body from a particular linage, grant a particular woman who herself also dealt with the struggles of flawed humanity, yet finds “favor with God”.
He goes about everything in absolute just, holy and glorious perfection, just as Christ the man was so many times “moved with compassion”, so then also from heaven God was moved to “so love the world”.
Therefore, when He comes into the world, He says,
“SACRIFICE AND OFFERING YOU HAVE NOT DESIRED,
BUT A BODY YOU HAVE PREPARED FOR ME;
IN WHOLE BURNT OFFERINGS AND sacrifices FOR SIN YOU HAVE TAKEN NO PLEASURE.
“THEN I SAID, ‘BEHOLD, I HAVE COME
(IN THE SCROLL OF THE BOOK IT IS WRITTEN OF ME)
TO DO YOUR WILL, O GOD.’” (Hebrews 10:5-7)
God has blessed us, loved us and has shown endless mercy to us! It is by the Spirit of God in His people that brings it all to the current tense of blesses, loves and gives.
Merry Christmas and God bless! (That wasn't too early was it?)
