Reasons why we should Emulate Mary-renowned as Jesus Christ's mother


The above topic dropped into my thoughts while perusing through a Christmas-themed Bible plan.

Mary, renowned as Jesus Christ’s mother, was an engaged virgin when visited by the Angel

Her role revealed to us that the Christmas season is all about doing the impossible. Mary stands as a living example of turning impossibility into possibility.

It also revealed to us that, in moments when we are going through a situation that seems beyond control, repair, or rescue, placing faith in the Almighty God becomes the transformative factor.

A person whose faith rests in God can be compared to fertile soil, where the Holy Spirit resides, cultivating powerful faith through His Word, just like Mary's experience.

Despite foreseeing the challenging implications of becoming a single parent and facing uncertainties, Mary placed her trust in God, recognizing that navigating such a significant step demanded substantial faith.

Although Mary may not grasp the full scope of the situation, she acknowledges a broader perspective. Recognizing that the One who singled her out among others holds every detail and puzzle piece, she rests in the assurance of God's love and guidance.

It's important to note that God did not choose Mary based on her deeds but because of her willingness to receive guidance from His heart. Additionally, the story of Mary reminds us that not every seemingly hopeless situation leads to despair. Just as in her narrative, believing in the transformative power of the One who can overturn circumstances can usher in a positive turn of events.

Let's emulate Mary. Our response to God's call should consistently be, "Yes, Lord." In the face of fear-inducing challenges, let it propel us to wait in His presence, draw close to Him, meditate on His Words, and listen to His voice. In Him, all that is seemingly impossible is made possible.

‘Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her. Luke 1:38 NKJV”
