Nothing Is Impossible
“For nothing is impossible with God.” - Luke 1:37 niv
Jesus born of a virgin? Many sophisticated minds classify such claims as preposterous. It’s classified right alongside other legends and myths. The virgin birth may seem like a tabloid headline: “Teenage Virgin Claims God Is the Father.” A virgin birth, like many other supernatural Bible events, does make a good story, but it is often impossible for a rational person to accept.
But realize that if you choose not to believe in the virgin birth, you’re going to miss out on the true nature of Jesus Christ. If Jesus had not been born of a virgin, the only conclusion you can draw is that he was just a man—a good man, but just a man. If you reject the virgin birth, you have chosen to believe in a mighty small God. But our God resurrected a man from the dead, so what’s the big deal about a virgin birth?
Think about what it means if you do accept the virgin birth. It means you believe what God’s Word says: “Nothing is impossible with God.” Right now, you may be facing some real trials and struggles in your life and see no possible way to deal with those issues. When you believe in the virgin birth, you can realize that nothing is impossible with God! There is no problem, there is no hardship, there is no difficulty that is too tough for God.
The virgin birth is important to understanding Jesus, and it’s important that we face impossible challenges since it reminds us that we have a great and mighty God.
