Christians celebrate Christmas, the day Christ was born on earth to Mary, the virgin mother. God doesn’t have to go to great lengths to show His vibrant brush strokes in the world and on our lives, yet He often does. Jesus coming to earth in such a unique way requires faith of those who believe, even to this day.
Though Christ said, “blessed are those who have believed and not seen” (John 20:29), there’s no need to have blind faith in Christ. Christmas is the celebration of the seemingly impossible but fantastically true virgin birth of Jesus Christ. It was something only God could accomplish. Mary’s faith connects us to this miraculous event and sets the tone for the celebratory status of Christmas.
