In the studying the story of Mary and Joseph, remember the Holy Spirit is your personal life coach. Studying the bible is an awesome opportunity to be coached by God Himself to reach your next level of spiritual growth. In this article, we study the miracle of Jesus' birth. The life application theme for this lesson is "Awakening Your Inner Greatness". Mary has something great inside of her spirit, something great in her mind, something great in her body, something great in her destiny... What's inside of you? The Virgin Birth is recorded in Matthew 1:18-25 and Luke 1:26-38. We will study the back story, the life significance and then be guided in the art of prayer.
First, The Back Story- Jesus is the greatest expression of God's love (the Messiah) who was promised in the old testament writings of the bible. Jesus is the Hypo-static union of God and man- Jesus is 100% God and 100% man. God allowed himself to be born as a person, to live among people and to teach people about the way of connecting back into the family of God. Jesus came through the birth canal of a woman- Jesus was born to a woman named Mary about 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem, Israel. Mary was a virgin when she became pregnant with Jesus. The miracle of the virgin birth of Jesus is recorded in the New Testament books of Matthew and Luke. So what? What does all that have to do with you in a 2014 context?
Second, The Life Application: Many times in life we forget how special we are to God. Just as God chose Mary to birth Jesus into this world, so has He chosen you for a great purpose. Don't forget, as a believer, you have the Spirit of the Almighty God inside of you. You are destined for great things! You are designed to perform and witness miracles.
Third, The Miracle Prayer of Possibility: Lord, as I go out today, I thank you for the greatness you have placed inside of me. I thank you for Your divine favor that surrounds me in each of my endeavors. I thank you for the miracles you have in store for me.
