|Jesus in a manger|
God is with us! Can anyone believe that? Can anyone understand that? What are the implications of that statement? How does that apply to our lives? The circumstances under which Jesus was born are awesome! He was born to a young lady, one who was as pure as a young lady could be. She was betrothed to an equally awesome man. He was one who knew, and handled, responsibility with extreme care.
I think God, the Father, chose a wonderful set of parents to foster His Son while here on earth. Can you imagine being picked by the God of all gods to raise His Son? I don't think I could be holy enough for it. Of course, Mary and Joseph were not perfect. No human being is perfect.
I pray that we understand what a miraculous concept this is. Only God could send a child to come forth through a virgin female. I know it's hard to believe, but God did it because He wanted to reconcile (bring together) humankind with Himself. That's how much he loves us. Let's show our gratitude by sharing that Good News with each other. Thanks for reading this blog entry about the conception of Jesus Christ. I appreciate you taking the time to read it.
