Pastor's Perspective - What's Impossible?
For nothing is impossible with God - Luke 1:37
What a comforting truth this angelic commentary must have been to a 'greatly troubled' Mary so long ago. Somehow the Word was going to become flesh. Some way the uncontainable was going to become a zygote. Mysteriously the One who cares for humanity would entrust Himself to humanity's care. The voice that spoke worlds into being would limit His vocabulary to coos and cries. Though her shock was immense and her understanding limited, by faith Mary trusted what Gabriel told her - that God can do whatever He wants, with whomever He wants, whenever He wants, without asking permission first! And a Galilean virgin simply responded, "May it be to me as you have said."
This Christmas, do you believe that God can do the "impossible" in your life? In your marriage? In your family? In your circumstances? In your church? In your witness and service for Him?
Remember! "Impossible" is only in our vocabulary.
