Several of my friends have written blogs each day of December based on the biblical Nativity accounts in Matthew and Luke’s Gospels. They are interesting, even captivating. I may try the same next year, though I admit to having trouble getting all wrapped up with wrapping up things.
I was browsing through a little book Joyce reviewed for the January 2014 issue of Larry Lilly’s Journal, Red Sea Rules, by Robert Morgan, when this bit by Cameron Thompson jumped off the page. See what you think:
“We have a God who starts with the impossible and goes on from there.”
This is a statement that deals with much more than The Nativity. All through the scriptures the hand of God is seen working the impossible. Genesis 1:1 is a case in point and each step in the creation account is miracle laden. When the miraculous is removed you have nothing. Period. The removal of the possibility of miracles seems to lead to a life of nothing, of emptiness, a life void of faith. We know that without faith it is impossible to please God.
For reasons unknown, God permits a miracle here and there even to those who do not believe.
When the angel visited Mary and told her of being overshadowed with The Holy Ghost, Mary responded basically, “Why that would be a miracle.” To which the angel responded, “Precisely.”
Luke 1:37 “For with God nothing shall be impossible.”
