This morning we read and preached on two different births that are mentioned in Luke 1 and 2. They are the births of John and Jesus. John was from a priestly line and he was chosen by God prior to his birth to be the forerunner of his Messiah, Jesus. For the life of John, God was preparing him to come on the scene and introduce to all of mankind the Anointed One of God. Also, Mary, the virgin mother of Jesus, was approached by the angel Gabriel. He told Mary that she had found favor with God and that He was going to bless her with being the mother of the Savior. She was not sure how this was going to be, but the angel reassured her, “For nothing is impossible with God!” This is not just a story of two births. It is a story that begs the question of all of us: Do we believe that nothing is impossible with God? If so, then we can believe that Jesus Christ truly is the Messiah, the Anointed One of God, who came to this world in order that He might seek and save that which is lost. This includes all of mankind: men, women, boys and girls. And the great news? Anyone who calls on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ SHALL be saved!

Do you believe? I do.
