Jesus: The Miracle Child

 

What is a miracle? Can we expect them? Do we believe in them? Is there any reason to hope for them at all?

Webster tells us that a miracle is: an extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs.

She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the

name Jesus, because he will save his people from their

sins. All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said

through the prophet: “The virgin will be with child and

will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel”

-which means, “God with us.” Matthew 1: 21-23, New

International Version

Assuming that we agree with Webster’s definition, we can define the birth of Jesus as nothing short of a miracle.

This was an extraordinary event in human affairs:

extraordinary event – A young unmarried, virgin gave birth to a son.

in human affairs – because he will save his people from their sins.

How is this a divine intervention? They will call him Immanuel which means God with us.

 

In Jesus, God has revealed himself to us. He was sent to reverse human affairs, that is to free us from our sin and save us for his glory. Jesus saves! We call him, “Immanuel!” In Jesus, God is with us forever and always.

Amen, Natasha Robinson
