CHRIST WAS CONCEIVED BY THE SPIRIT

Without the Holy Spirit Christ would not have existed in our earthly realm. The Holy Spirit made it possible for Christ to physically exist in our world. Mary, having previously no sexual relations with any man was only able to miraculously conceive and give birth to the Son of God because the power of the Holy Spirit was upon her.

Likewise, just as Christ was conceived in this earthly realm by the Spirit, so also man is born into the Kingdom of God by the same Holy Spirit. Without the Holy Spirit there can be no renewing of the spirit of man. In other words, without the Holy Spirit no one can be born again!

SCRIPTURE READING: Luke 1:34-35 And Mary said to the angel, How can this be, since I have no [intimacy with any man as a] husband? Then the angel said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you like a shining cloud; and so the holy (pure, sinless) Thing (Offspring) which shall be born of you will be called the Son of God.

Titus 3:5-6 He saved us, not because of any works of righteousness that we had done, but because of His own pity and mercy, by the cleansing bath of the new birth regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, Which He poured out so richly upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior.

DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I pray you continue to open the eyes of my understanding, so that I may be able to truly understand your word. In Jesus’ name, Amen
