New Life...God's Greatest Miracle
After now being gifted two precious newborn babies, I am amazed how anyone could behold the miracle of new life and not believe in our Almighty Creator. Too many physical phenomena must happen in order for conception, pregnancy, and labor to succeed. Only Creator God could perfect each process...not evolution.
But then I ask myself this question...
What is God's greatest miracle? I am tempted in a world of self-made-men to say, "a husband and wife conceiving a baby out of their love for each other is the greatest miracle." But, my heart leaps at the pride and heresy of that thought. Conceiving a baby and raising children is only a blessing the Lord Jesus gives us. He allows us to partake in HIS process of bringing new life into the world. So the answer must be: The Greatest Miracle of all Time is NEW LIFE in Jesus Christ.
What do I mean? Coming into this world is a true miracle, but without receiving new birth in Jesus Christ, this world only leaves you dying and hopeless. Pharisee Nicodemus asked Jesus how a man can come to God. Jesus' reply was, "no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again (new birth)" (John 3). Nicodemus was dumbfounded. He replied, "Surely a man cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb to be born!" Jesus then explains the Greatest Miracle ever perfomed. He says, "no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water (physical birth) and the Spirit (salvation in Jesus Christ)." We must have a spiritual birth in order to truly have life. By spiritual I do not mean mystical or delusional...I mean a faith conceived by God, brought about by the Holy Spirit that reveals Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. New birth in Jesus is the only way to true life. Jesus Christ, living a sinless life, dying on the cross, and rising again gives us the opportunity to have a new spiritual birth that adopts us into the family of God. Amen! Thank you Creator God for giving us life on the earth and allowing us eternal life in Heaven with you.
