Many churches throughout the world use a Bible reading schedule called a "lectionary." It's just a fancy word meaning "selected readings." Posts like this reflect on the readings for an upcoming Sunday or other Church holiday, as found in the historic one-year lectionary.
David's son and David's Lord, born of a virgin. It seems impossible. In fact, it is impossible. Mary is troubled by the angel's address in Luke chapter 1. She doesn't think of herself as particularly favored.
God shows himself here to be exactly the kind of God who does what is impossible. He can make Mary pregnant though she remains a virgin. He can ring God the Son, who created all things through His Word, into the world at a particular time. He can be immortal God who knows all and also be an infant who doesn't know how to speak.
What is our response? As with Mary, so with us. Let it be according to God's Word. His word is good and true. He will bring it to pass, according to his redemptive love.
