  • The conception of Jesus Christ

    Matthew 1:18-21, Luke 1:35

         Christmas is almost upon us, and we will be celebrating the birth of the Christ, but the miracle was not the actual birth of Jesus, the miracle was the conception. That a human body could be conceived within a mother’s womb, without an earthly father and without sin. We celebrate Christmas because of how the Christ came.
