The Greatest Reveal In History
Tis the season – Busy, Busy, Busy – Buying presents, attending parties, so much to do.
Slow down……Let’s focus on the important!
Luke 1 is the account of the angel appearing to Mary and changing the course of the world!
Mary is told:
28 REJOICE! You are highly favored – The Lord is with You!
30 Do not be afraid, you have found favor with God
31 You will conceive – inside of you
35 God will do it through His Spirit
36 Elizabeth (your cousin) is expecting
37 With God all things are possible
38 Mary accepts – Let it be to me according to Your word
Because the Son of the Living God was birthed inside of a young girl and we know the whole story – He was born, lived, died, rose again we have been granted the privilege to have Him birthed inside of us!
John 3:5-8 Jesus says…… Unless you are born of water (natural) and Spirit you cannot enter the kingdom of God. What is born of flesh is flesh and what is born of the Spirit is Spirit. (A new seed is placed inside of us!) You must be born again. The wind blows where is wishes, you hear the sound, but can’t tell where it comes from or where it is going. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.
Some women just know they are expecting a child. Their body hasn’t changed. They may not have even had a test to confirm it. There is a knowing – I am expecting! The way she lives life changes also. She stops certain things and starts doing things she never thought she would
When we ask Jesus to forgive us of our sins and believe in our heart He, has we can have the same knowing inside. There is something that has changed. Our physical body hasn’t changed but we can know there is something different.
What is different?
John 17:11 Jesus says – that they may be one as we are one (He was praying to His Father)
John 17:23 I in them (Christ is birthed in us) and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them and You have loved Me.
Colossians 1:27 ….The mystery of the gospel – Christ in you, the hope of glory!
There is a life inside of us that we like Mary need to acknowledge, and believe. With God all things are possible. He will lead and guide us. God will do it through His Spirit. Christ has been birthed in me! I don’t have to be afraid, I have found favor with God! REJOICE!
- 6 As you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk (live) in Him.
- 7 Be rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it, with thanksgiving.
- 8 Don’t let anyone cheat you, deceive you…….
- 9 In Christ dwells all the fullness of the Godhead in a bodily form (You are the body He now dwells in)
- 10 You are complete in Him, who in the head of all principality and power!
Just as Jesus was birthed inside of a young girl named Mary.
He is (can be) birthed in us!
May you have a blessed and Merry Christmas!
