(Your Name Here), A Child of God

The coming of Jesus into the world was accompanied by many miraculous and supernatural events. Here’s a partial list.

Super-natural events around the birth of Christ:

  • Zechariah visited by an angel
  • Angel visits Mary to tell of Jesus’ birth
  • Joseph dreams of Jesus’ birth
  • Magi dream not to tell Herod of Jesus’ whereabouts
  • Joseph warned by an angel to flee to Egypt
  • Joseph dreams (Angel appears) that it’s safe to return to Israel

When God came down to dwell among men it shook the foundations of the earth for that event marked a turning point in the history of the world. God personally arrived to rescue us from our sins and to bring us into a new relationship with Him. He adopted us into His family.

Galatians 3:24-27
24 So the law was our guardian until Christ came that we might be justified by faith.
25 Now that this faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian.
26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith,
27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.

1 John 3:1
1 See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!

We should never take for granted that every time someone recognizes their need for and places their faith in Jesus it is another miraculous and supernatural event. In that moment a person is reconciled to God, is adopted as one of His children and receives the Holy Spirit into his or her heart. In that moment God brings peace on earth to the one who receives Him. In that moment God expresses His love and good will toward His creation.

Miracles still happen today. God’s Holy Spirit continues to operate supernaturally today. Every day we get to live in the very presence of the Creator of the universe. What could possibly be better!
