9/19 Luke 1

This is an amazing section.  This must of been a truly amazing moment in the life of Mary.  God sends Gabriel to Mary to tell her she is highly favored and He has a special responsibility for her.  She is to give birth and raise the Son of God.  One can only imagine what could of been running through her mind.  Why me? Wait, I’m supposed to get married soon. Is this a dream?

26In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”

29Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. 31You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. 32He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.” Follow this link to continue reading
