Luke 1:26-38

The account of why we celebrate this time of year is spoken to us in scripture and gets us ready for Christmas. In today’s scripture, we read about an Angel speaking to Mary; this wasn’t just an ordinary human conversation this was a direct message from up high. We have to wonder how Mary’s head was spinning at the words Gabriel spoke to her and how confused she was. We don’t read that in scripture but we know what her response was to him; Vs. 38 “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled”.  Mary herself had a choice.  She could have chosen to say “Yes God as you wish” or she could have remained silent to indicate “no… I won’t do this.” Through her trust and obedience we have reason to celebrate the birth of the Christ child. Sometimes when God calls us, what God calls us to do may not be easy but we should follow Mary’s example. God Loves Ya 😉
