The Birth Of Jesus - A Mighty Miracle
In Genesis 29-30, we read of many births. The significant birth, in terms of God's purpose of redemption, is the birth of Joseph (Genesis 30:22-24). There is, of course, another Joseph in Scripture - Joseph, the husband of Mary, the mother of Jesus. The birth of Jesus was a mighty miracle. Jesus was the Son of God. He had a special relationship to God the Father - "no one knows the Father except the Son" (Matthew 11:27). To whom does the Son choose to reveal the Father? - He reveals the Father to those who respond to His gracious invitation - "Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28). To those who come to Jesus Christ, God's promise is given: "Those who know Your name trust in You, for You, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek You" (Psalm 9:10).
