“The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a Son and will call Him – Emmanuel … ‘God is with us.’” – Isaiah 7:14
When God sent His unblemished Son, Jesus Christ, to earth to die for the sins of the world … He sent ‘perfection’! And, He sent Jesus through Mary, a virgin. The virgin birth of Christ emphasizes the fact that the sacrificial Lamb must be absolutely perfect.
God taught the Hebrews that He wanted nothing but the best. In turn, God gives nothing but His best in all circumstances. While it is difficult for us to grasp that truth at times … He is always working in our lives to accomplish His will.
There are times when we need to be reminded of who God is.
There are also times when we need to be reminded of what He deserves … OUR BEST!
And the virgin birth of Jesus Christ serves as a constant reminder of what He deserves from you and me.
The Lord has already given us His best … His perfect Son, Jesus Christ … through an untouched Mary. Shouldn’t we be willing to give Him the same?
As we enter the new year of 2016 let’s each determine to give HIM our best each and every day!!
