Willing Servant

| | Comments (3)

Today's reading: Luke 1:26-38 

Mary's response to the surprise message that she is going to give birth to Jesus, the Son of God, never ceases to amaze me. Think about it for a minute. Try and imagine yourself in her shoes as Gabriel delivers one shocker of a message that doesn't make earthly sense, not to mention that it would certainly place her in a not good position being pregnant but not yet married. But Mary isn't shaken. Her focus is clearly on God and she responds as a willing servant.

"'Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word'" (verse 38).

How did Mary's example encourage you today? What actions or thinking might you model going forward? Tami

Imagine this:
The Amazing Spirit of THE LORD has given us His WORD (LOGOS) telling us plainly what will be, yet so many won't believe it, even those who Profess Jesus as Christ Messiah.

Grace and Peace, until Judgment Day


We are placed here to please God. What He
expects from us is to trust Him, through the Holy Spirit, and to obey.
I,m afraid to say that most of us fall short of the mark, especially if it
Doesn,t fit into our personal earthly agenda. Lord help us to be obedient
To your will, is my prayer.

If Mary's example teaches us anything, it's that God honors those who are willing and ready to do His will. She doesn't hesitate or not believe, she simply declares her commitment to the Lord and is obedient. That's the kind of commitment and obedience we're called to display.
