The Significance Of Christmas

Day 1 of 3 • This day’s reading


Lord Jesus Christ‘s birth was unique and beyond natural realms.  Virgin Mary was betrothed to Joseph, while she conceived by the Holy Spirit. Joseph wanted to put her away or divorce Mary when he found she was with child, but did not as an angel spoke with him in a dream and explained the baby she was carrying was the Lord Jesus Christ. 

With faint imagery, it is possible to explain virgin birth. An 11-year-old reticulated python named Thelma produced six female offspring in June 2012 at the Louisville Zoo in Kentucky, where she lives with another female python, Louise. No male had ever slithered anywhere near the 200-pound (91-kilogram), 20-foot-long (6 meters) mother snake. "New DNA evidence, published in July in the Biological Journal of the Linnean Society, revealed that Thelma is the sole parent" said Bill McMahan, the zoo's curator of ectotherms, or cold-blooded animals.

Lord Jesus Christ incarnation is important to understand God’s love for humanity.  God sent his Son who is Divine as well as Human, so that he could die for the sin of humanity and rise again to live forevermore.  Lord Jesus did not have a human father, so he is Holy and worthy to die as propitiation for the sins of humanity.  

The supernatural conception of Lord Jesus Christ testifies him as Son of God, only eligible Savior of humanity and Lord of whole creation.
