Miracle of Christmas

The birth of baby Jesus was surrounded with many miracles. Virgin Mary conceived from the Holy Spirit – it is a miracle. Angel appeared to Joseph – it is a miracle. The prophecy from the Old Testament was fulfilled – it was also a miracle. ‘Look! A virgin will become pregnant and give birth to a son, And they will call him, Emmanuel which means “God with us.”’ (Matthew 1:23)

The name of the baby boy was Emmanuel which means God is with us – this is a great miracle of life – when God is with us. It fills us with faith and confidence, hope and love, it casts away from our hearts everything that is not pleasing to Holy God. Also, parents called the boy Jesus which means “Lord is salvation”. This is a miracle that God is now with us and saves our souls. By receiving this gift of God’s salvation through faith in Jesus Christ we open space for miracles in our lives. Jesus changes our hearts and changes world around us. Dear sisters and brothers, I wish you miraculous Christmas and blessed New Year! May the Lord give you many miracles in your life and in your ministry with people!

With love in Christ,
Bishop Eduard Khegay
