“For nothing is impossible with God (Luke 1:37).”
We serve a miraculous God. From time to time he will suspend his own laws of nature to help his children. Why, you ask?
C.S. Lewis says it best: “Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.” Because of his love for us, God is in the process of moving throughout history into the human experience – to save us from our sin and to empower us to live as he created us to live.
But humans, by and large, are myopic. Rarely do we step back and see the big picture. God’s love is there to see. Paul describes it written across the skies in God’s beautiful creation. Solomon says that it’s been written on our hearts. But what WE see is often only the need of the moment: the problem at hand.
So, because of his love for us, God will sometimes miraculously meet the needs of those he loves. Writing to us in smaller, more personal letters the same message he’s been conveying all along. And no less is true in the Christmas story. God moved miraculously that first Christmas. I hope you’ll join us Sunday and we’ll discuss it…and how it matters to us today.
