THE APOSTLES’ CHRISTMAS – I BELIEVE IN THE VIRGIN BIRTHDecember 19, 2021
THE APOSTLES’ CHRISTMAS
“I Believe in the Virgin Birth”
“Jesus Christ was fully God and fully man in one person and will be so forever.” Wayne Grudem, Systematic Theology
I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary. “The Apostle’s Creed”
Why is the Virgin birth important?
- It shows that salvation must come from God.
- The virgin birth made possible the uniting of full deity and full .
- The Virgin birth makes possible Christ’s true humanity without sin.
“So, when the devil throws your sins in your face and declares that you deserve death and hell, tell him this: “I admit that I deserve death and hell, what of it? For I know One who suffered and made satisfaction on my behalf. His name is Jesus Christ, Son of God, and where He is there, I shall be also!”
– Martin Luther
