Glorious Impossible

glorious impossibleWhat do these three Scriptures have in common? “A body you prepared for me.”Hebrews 10:5“You knit me together in my mother’s womb” Psalm 139:13 and “A lamb without blemish or defect.”1 Peter 1:19

When the Most High (Luke 1:35) impregnated the young virgin Mary, he said to her, “The son you’ll give birth to will be called the Son of the Most High (32).” We don’t need to be reminded that God the Father and God the Son had through out eternity been one and inseparable until now. The glorious impossible is about to happen. His Son is going to be human for 33 years cared for by a human mother.

Now let’s return to our three Scriptures. While Jesus was in Mary’s womb, the Creator-God controlled his son’s development from conception to birth. Why? His prepared body had to be perfect, no heart murmur, no missing finger. To be the sacrificial paschal lamb “without blemish or defect,” Mary delivered an unflawed human baby.

He met all his father’s requirements to be the “perfect sacrifice” to reconnect his flawed creation through his unflawed Son. “Who bore our sins in his perfect body on the tree.”

As I meditated on the relationship between my Heavenly Father and his eternal Son, this glorious impossible became the most worshipful and thought-provoking Father’s Day I’ve ever had!
