Matthew 1:18 (LEB): Now the birth of Jesus Christ occurred in this way.
Do you remember how your kids were born or even how you were born through stories that your parents told you? We may not think about it, but as simple as those stories are they reveal a deep truth. What is that truth? Our births are all a miracle of God’s grace and love. Think about how easy or how difficult some of your births!
Matthew recalling Jesus’ birth reveals to us God’s grace, love, and presence. It’s not just our physical birth that is a miracle but our spiritual birth as well. It is God who draws you to Him through his Son. In faith through Christ, you are now born again to everlasting life. This month let us live remembering how good our births are both physically and spiritually.
