Miracles were a part of Jesus’ life from the very beginning. It all started with the Magi coming from the East. How did these men know the Christ was born? Did they even know He was the Messiah? But they showed up anyway through miraculous guidance. Then Herod wanted Jesus dead, but the Magi were warned in a dream not to go back to Herod in order to protect the future Savior of the World. Then Joseph was warned to take his family to Egypt to further protect Jesus from death. God protected the Messiah in miraculous ways and He did it for our benefit. Not just for the obvious reason of protecting our Savior, but also so we would know God’s hand was in it from the beginning. God loves us so much He is willing to move mountains on our behalf. Providing a way to eternal salvation was just the beginning.
