“Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” Isaiah 7:14
Take a moment to imagine being pregnant with the Great I Am, Creator of the Universe wrapped in flesh and kicking inside of you. Mary experienced the nearness of God like no other had before her. God was literally closer than her breath. That is how much God wanted to live inside us! That is the miracle, Christ in us! If you have Jesus in your life, you believe in Him as Lord & Savior over your life and have been baptized in water and the Holy Spirit then the Spirit of Christ lives inside of you! Just like Mary was pregnant with Him we are filled with Him as well in spirit!
“Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you–unless, of course, you fail the test?” 2 Corinthians 13:5
A pregnant woman takes care differently because of the life living inside of her…because what she eats the baby eats, what she drinks the baby drinks. What if we fully realized that the very Spirit of Christ lives inside of us…would we live differently so as to not grieve the Holy Spirit?
That is all! Have a blessed Christmas in the Messiah’s embrace!
