I’m in the middle of a three-week Christmas series, The Beginning, the Birth, and the Baby. The text is Matthew 1:18-25. The birth of Jesus reveals two surprises about God coming to us: Humility and vulnerability The virgin birth is essential to the miracle of grace. Why is the virgin birth essential to our faith? Three implications: The miracle of grace is not painless. The miracle of grace requires our submission to God’s work. The miracle of grace is God’s simple answer to our messed-up, complicated lives.
