Over the next two weeks, I will be using Ruth Jorritsma's Advent Reading Calendar as the basis for my devotional thoughts. If you would like a complete listing of readings - contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Isaiah 7:14 (HCSB): "Therefore, the Lord Himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive,
have a son, and name him Immanuel."
One area that skeptics love to attack is the doctrine of the Virgin Birth. They tell us it is biologically impossible. And, I have to agree. However, with God nothing is impossible (Matt. 19:26). If we leave God out of the equation, it couldn't happen. Nevertheless, God is the center part of this equation.
The Virgin Birth is what tells us that Jesus was 100% God (Father) and 100% human (Mother). It tells us He has no sin nature. It tells us that He is different from all other humans who have walked this earth. He is what the name listed says - Immanuel - God with us.
Ponder the truth of God coming to earth for you.
