Finally we are here. An angel appears to Mary. He tells her all about this child that she will give birth to.
32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.”Luke 1:32-33
Mary questions the angel. How can this be? The angel explains that this child has been given by God\
Mary said to the angel, “How will this be, since I am a virgin?” 37 For nothing will be impossible with God.” 38 And Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant[e] of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her
Luke 1:34 & 37-38
As we walked through this study we saw Grace From the Start. We saw situations that were desperate, dark, and humanly impossible to over come. Over and over again we saw that ‘nothing will be impossible with God.’
As we reflect on all the situations that got us to this point in scripture let’s marvel with Mary on how great a God we have and all He has done.
46 And Mary said,
“My soul magnifies the Lord,Luke 1:47-55
47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
48 for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant.
For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
49 for he who is mighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his name.
50 And his mercy is for those who fear him
from generation to generation.
51 He has shown strength with his arm;
he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts;
52 he has brought down the mighty from their thrones
and exalted those of humble estate;
53 he has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
54 He has helped his servant Israel,
in remembrance of his mercy,
55 as he spoke to our fathers,
to Abraham and to his offspring forever.”
It is two days before Christmas Eve which means it can get pretty crazy. But if you are like me and need a cup of coffee and 5-10 minutes to remember what Christmas is all about write out what these words from Mary.
