Creator of heaven and earth, Father God, Almighty Savior, I bow in awe and reverence of Your majesty. Your wisdom is beyond comprehension for You birthed Your Son into the world through the Spirit’s overshadowing of the virgin’s womb. You suffered the crucifixion for me so that I would not remain shackled to the weight of my sin. You brought heaven down because I was powerless to come back to You on my own. By the life You lived, I have been set free from death. By the death You endured, I have been given life. May I remember all that You have done in forsaking the treasures of heaven in order to live in the dust of the earth. May I live for You each day because You died for me. Thank You, God, for the wisdom that baffles my comprehension because Your grace is scandalous. Under the Word of Your truth in Matthew 1:18 and the authority of Christ, I pray.
The birth of Jesus Christ came about this way:
After His mother Mary had been engaged to Joseph,
it was discovered before they came together
that she was pregnant by the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 1:18, HCSB
