Davidisms - Power
Power. The Christmas story is indeed powerful. Here’s how it began. Hovering over a formless, empty darkness, the Holy Spirit - in His power - created this world from nothing (Gen. 1:1-2). That same Spirit - in His power - came upon Mary and created the incarnate Jesus in her womb (Luke 1:26-38). That same power gave Jesus the ability to perform multitudes of miracles. Time and time again. Too many miracles to be contained (John 21:25). This same power made us into new creations. Taking our dead, empty hearts and making them alive in Jesus (2 Cor. 5:16). And the very same power that raised Jesus from the dead now lives in us who believe (Rom. 8:11). For only through the supernatural power of God was a baby born into this world sinless. Leading a perfect life. So that those who believe in him - Jesus - can live forgiven and free. Both now and forever. This Christmas, may we dwell on the work of the Holy Spirit in the Christmas story. He is the power of God. To us. In us. From the beginning of time. To the cradle. To the cross.
