Mary asked the angel, “How can this be, since I have not been intimate with a man?” The angel replied to her: “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. Therefore, the Holy One to be born will be called the Son of God.” Luke 2:34-35 HCSB
In today’s world there are many who find it difficult to believe in the virgin birth of Jesus. They want to explain away the virgin birth and many miracles in the Bible with a natural explanation rather than accept that God is all powerful. He was capable of creating the world just by His spoken Word. He was capable of separating the Red Sea and making it possible for the children of Israel to walk through on dry land. And He was capable of enabling a virgin to become pregnant and give birth to a child that would be called the Son of God.
Luke, the writer, was a medical doctor therefore was credible to proclaim that Jesus was born of a virgin. Luke based his writings on eye witness accounts and made sure that what he recorded was accurate. It is believed that Luke personally talked with Mary to confirm the fact that she was a virgin and that she became pregnant without having a relationship with any man.
Challenge: Believe that God has the power to create a child in a virgin’s womb. Our God is an awesome God and nothing is impossible for Him. Praise Him for who He is and for what He has done for you through His Son, Jesus.
