Prayer Request

Luke 1:26-33
In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a village in Galilee, to a virgin named Mary. She was engaged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of King David. Gabriel appeared to her and said, “Greetings, favored woman! The Lord is with you!” Confused and disturbed, Mary tried to think what the angel could mean. “Don’t be afraid, Mary,” the angel told her, “for you have found favor with God! You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus. He will be very great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David. And he will reign over Israel forever; his Kingdom will never end!”

The kingdom ushered in by Jesus Christ has no end. As far as we are concerned, that kingdom finds it's beginning right here, in a promise from God. Mary, one who is "highly favored" by God, is about to be pregnant out of wedlock and face many hardships...not to mention the possibility that Joseph might leave her. In the face of all this uncertainty, she responds, "Let it be unto me as you have said." Her belief in God does not flinch because of her circumstances, and our faith in God should not falter because of ours. Remember: Jesus is the beginning and the end - our all in all.
