That Master-piece of the Holy Spirit

And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call His name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto Him the throne of His father David: And He shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of His kingdom there shall be no end. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. -Luke 1:30-35

By the simple spreading of (the Holy Spirit’s) dove-like wings, He can make all the things come together… We have seen some of His works in creation. But there was one particular instance of creation in which the Holy Spirit was more especially concerned; viz., the formation of the body of our Lord Jesus Christ. Though our Lord Jesus Christ was born of a woman, and made in the likeness of sinful flesh, yet, the power that begat Him was entirely in God the Holy Spirit-as the Scriptures express it, “The Holy One of Israel shall overshadow thee.” He was begotten, as the Apostles’ Creed says, begotten of the Holy Ghost. “That holy thing which is born of thee shall be called the Son of the Highest.” The corporeal frame of the Lord Jesus Christ was a master-piece of the Holy Spirit. I suppose His body to have excelled all others in beauty; to have been like that of the first man, the very pattern of what the body is to be in heaven, when it shall shine forth in all its glory. That fabric, in all its beauty and perfection, was modeled by the Spirit. “In His book were all the members written, when as yet there were none of them.” He fashioned and formed Him; and here again we have another instance of the creative energy of the Spirit. ~ C.H. Spurgeon
