And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son,
and you shall call his name Jesus.
God works in mysterious and amazing ways. Young ladies imagine at a young age being told by God that you would give birth to Jesus. Mary was probably thinking the same thoughts you would have. How is this possible?
How could this be a reality? How could she give birth to such a baby? This baby was no ordinary baby it was Jesus, the creator of heaven and earth, our savior, our friend, our redeemer! The God who put the whole world into motion now lay in a manger surrounded by his creation!
And the angel answered her,
“The Holy Spirit will come upon you,
and the power of the Most High will overshadow you;
therefore the child to be born will be called holy—the Son of God.
Mary had an awesome calling on her life and through the power of the Holy Spirit was able to have the strength. We have an awesome calling on our lives as well and through the power of the Holy Spirit we will be able to endure! We will proclaim the awesome name of Jesus so that the world will know that He is God.
