Luke 1:26-28 (NKJV): Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!”

What would you have done if you were Mary?

We know that she was a teenager when the angel visited her. We know that she was betrothed to Joseph to be his wife. We know that she was a virgin. We can assume from what we see here is that she was probably faithful in following God. What we don’t know is what was she doing when the angel appeared.

Even though we do not know what she was doing, we do know that Scripture tells us that the angel entered in. We can also pick up from other parts of Scripture, that when angels appeared, there was a glory that would cause people to fall and start to worship them, until they told them to stop. Scripture does not say that about Mary here.

Did she know that she was going to be visited? Was she spending time in worship with God when the angel appeared? Possibly. We can see that when angels appeared to others, they were praying seeking God for answers or even just worshipping Him.

Mary was about to experience something from this visit that no other has. This did not deify her as many will teach. Nor does this put her in a position of an advocate with God as been handed done through generations. She was an average teenager that had an experience with God, who used an angel to give her a message.

What would you have done if you were her?

If we are to please God, we need to allow The Holy Spirit to set us apart. We need to pursue a sinless life. We are to seek Righteousness. How do we do it? Through prayer, study, fellowship, being willing to be corrected/accountability, discipleship, and service.

It starts with Our Relationship with Jesus. If you don’t have a Relationship with Him or you need to rekindle that Relationship, do it now. Call out to Him and seek his Love and Forgiveness. It really is as hard or easy as you make it.

We should look to Him daily to seek a relationship with Him. I want to encourage you to seek Him today, if you haven’t already. If you need help, have questions or need direction in this regard, please, feel free to let me know.

Maybe today you are struggling with something. Maybe you may have found yourself not as close to The Lord as you thought. We would like to help you in this through prayer and guidance. If you find yourself in need of prayer and/or encouragement, please, feel free to call or text +1 (505) 600-1027 or email
