The print above is of the Angel Gabriel appearing to Mary to announce the birth of Jesus.
Podcast of message preached at The King’s Church, Jacksonville, Florida, Saturday, December 6, 2008.
Next to Jesus Himself the most important person in the Christmas story is Mary!
Why did God choose her? What was it about her that caused God to pick Mary to be the mother of His only begotten Son? Here is a woman who lived the miracle, not just in Christ’s birth, but in the rest of her entire life. She not only carried the baby in her womb, birthed Him, nurtured Him, followed and served Him in His ministry, watched Him at the cross as He died, saw Him alive again after His resurrection, received the Spirit sent by Him (even speaking in tongues on the day of Pentecost), but she became a prominent leader in the Apostolic Church.
Like Mary, the Lord wants all of us to move from experiencing momentary miracles to living miraculously every day, in our personal lives, our marriages, our families, our businesses, our jobs, and in everything. What was it about mary that let her live miraculously every day? What is it going to take for us to do the same?
