And the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.
That little teenage girl has a thing or two to show us. Mary holds the mirror up to us Christians and then asks the question, "will you trust him as I did?" After asking all her questions about virgin births, and sacred words, she surrenders her heart to the Lord and in the first act of Christmas hospitality, Mary surrenders her body to be a vessel for the Lord. Even before all the questions were answered about Joseph, about Jesus, and about what her family would think, Mary gives her entire life to God, through the Spirit, for the Son. As we come to worship this Son during the Advent Week of Love, what are you fearing? What impossible task has the Lord given to your body? Join us as we continue in our Advent Series, Waiting Room.
