One of the most frequent challenges that I get when my lessons are heard by Muslims is that Jesus Christ is not the Son of God. They often quote the Quran which states that “Allah, who has not begotten a son (nor an offspring)…” as the basis for their disbelief. They have also asked this question, “You say that Jesus Christ is the Son of God because He was born of a virgin, and that He didn’t have an earthly father. Well, Adam didn’t have a father or a mother. Wouldn’t that make Adam more a Son of God than Jesus?” The answer to that question is found at the very root of our knowledge about who Jesus Christ is. The answer that the Word of God gives us is that Jesus is not the Son of God because He was born of a virgin. Instead, He was born of a virgin because He is the Son of God.
Now, I’m aware that the world laughs at the idea of a virgin birth. They think of it as some sort of primitive, medieval, superstition or something. They mock the idea of the virgin birth. I can tell you furthermore, the devil hates the idea of the virgin birth, because it teaches both the humanity and the deity of his nemesis, and our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Well, I want to show you in this message that you have no hope of salvation apart from the virgin birth. I want to show you that if you take away the virgin birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, you have destroyed the whole foundation of Christianity, and it will all collapse like a house of cards. It is not incidental; it is fundamental.
Jesus was born of a virgin that we might be born again. He came to earth that we might go to heaven. He became the Son of man that we might become the sons and daughters of God. That’s what it’s all about. That is why we have the virgin birth. Thank God that God stepped out of heaven and was born of a virgin. That’s the reason the angel said, “I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.” (Luke 2:10)
Jesus Christ is not the white man’s Savior, the black man’s Savior, the yellow man’s Savior, the western Savior, the eastern Savior; He is the Savior of the world. “This is good news which is to all people.” He is the Savior of the world. The world needs Jesus. Jews and Gentiles need Jesus. Young and old need Jesus. Rich and poor need Jesus. Intellectual and illiterate, we all need Jesus. He is the virgin-born Son of God.
Clink on the link below to hear a podcast message from The Master’s Class at LifeChange Church Wichita that describes the answer to this world’s problems is the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. The hope of the individual, the hope of the church, the hope of the family, the hope of this nation, and the hope of this world, is Jesus Christ.
