Impossible to Possible

Series: Whaaat? Awestruck by Glory

December 12, 2021 | Jeff Lucas

As we consider the theme ‘Impossible to Possible’ we celebrate the truth that we serve God - the One who made everything, and that He is able to do remarkable, supernatural things. A virgin birth is one example! How can we posture ourselves for greater intervention from our great God?

Impossible to possible

Luke 1:26-38

  • The impossible is for  people
    God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a village in Galilee,  to a virgin named Mary (1:26-27) 
  • Miracles begin with Gabriel appeared to her and said, “Greetings,* favored woman! The Lord is with you!* (1:28) 
  •  is part of the journey
    Confused and disturbed, Mary tried to think what the angel could mean. (1:29)
  •  are building blocks of faith
    Mary asked the angel, “But how can this happen? (1:34)
  •  is a daily choice
    Mary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” (1:38)
  •  will always be needed
    And then the angel left her. (1:38)


Series Information

The Christmas story, so familiar, so little understood, is about the extravagant love of God who came so far to rescue us. It’s about what is totally impossible becoming a reality - enough to split the heavens open, revealing an angelic praise party. And it’s about heaven coming to earth, the Messiah, not a victorious warlord as expected, but a fragile, tiny baby. Hope has come, not in an idea, a theory, but in the person of Jesus. ‘Awesome’ is an overused word, but one that is totally appropriate when we consider the Advent narrative.
