03/14/19 – Luke 1:26-56; Psalm 57:1-11; Proverbs 11:9-11
From Miriam-Webster online dictionary: nothing (pronoun) 1 : not any thing : no thing (ex: leaves nothing to the imagination)
So, I guess today’s Blog is about “nothing.” But why? — It starts with a verse from the New Kings James version of Luke 1 as Gabriel answers a very good question from Mary.
Luke 1: 34 Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?” 35 And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God. 36 Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren. 37 For with God nothing will be impossible.”
The literal Greek expression is even more explicit — “for not shall be impossible with God any thing.” (from Berry’s Interlinear Greek-English New Testament.)
I am reassured by Gabriel’s response — not only is the virgin birth of Jesus possible — with God all things are possible. And due to His grace and love we are His children and are recipients of this promise.
