Mary (1)

One of the main characters in the Christmas story is Mary. Verse 28 of our Bible Reading tells us that Mary was a very special girl. God’s angel went to Mary and said, “Greetings! The Lord is with you; you are very special to him.”
Mary must have been confused and scared about the things that the angel told her. ,em>“Listen! You will become pregnant and have a baby boy. You will name him Jesus” (verse 31). The angel told Mary that the “baby will be holy and will be called the Son of God” (verse 35b).
How did Mary react to this news? Did she tell God that she didn’t want to do this? No! Did Mary say that she needed to think about it for a few days? No! Mary said (verse 38), “I am the servant of the Lord God. Let this thing you have said happen to me!”
Often God shows you what you need to do for Him. How do you react? I hope that you are like Mary. Obey and serve God.
