Mother Mary

''Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a *sign, Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His Name Immanuel."
Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth. a virgin, betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin's name was Mary. 28.And having come in, the angel said to her, "Rejoice, highly favoured one, the Lord is with you; blessed* are you among woman!" 29.But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was. 30.Then the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favour with God. 31."And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name *JESUS. 32.He will be great,
and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. 33."And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His Kingdom there will be no end." 34.Then Mary said to the angel, "How can this be, since I do not know a man?" 35.And the angel answered and said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore also, the Holy One who is
to be born
will be called the
Son of God.
The Song of Mary *Luke1:46-55*
And Mary said;
"My soul magnifies the Lord. 47.And my Spirit has rejoiced in God my Saviour. 48.For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant; For behold, henceforth all generations will call me blessed. 49.For He who is mighty has done great things for me, And Holy is His name. 50.And His mercy is on those who fear Him from generation to generation. 51.He has shown strength with His arm; He has scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. 52.And has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted the lowly. 53. He has filled the hungry with good things, And the rich He has sent away empty. 54.He has helped His servant Israel, In remembrance of His mercy, 55.He has spoke to our fathers, To Abraham and to his
seed forever.''
Faithful Mother And Obedient Disciple ~~~~~~~
There is a wonder surrounding Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ, that transcends traditional religious thought. That she was a privileged vessel, chosen to bear God's Son, is wonder enough, for She is a participant in the miracle incarnation at a level no other human being can comprehend. It is clear that she did not claim to understand it herself, but simply Worshiped God
in humble acknowledgement of the phenomenon engulfing her existence. "My soul magnifies the Lord." she exclaims. (v46). We can hardly fathom the bewildering moments she experienced. 1)when Simeon prophecied future mental/emotional suffering (Luke2:35); 2)when she and Joseph spoke with Jesus after they thought He was lost in Jerusalem (Luke2:49, 50); 3)when Jesus gently rebuffed her at the wedding in Cana (John2:4);
4)when Jesus seemed to reject her and His brothers' efforts at helping Him, though they clearly misunderstood Him at the time. (Matt.12:46, 50) These instances prompt our learning the wisdom of persistence and obedience in following God's basic directive on our lives, even when the details of the outworking of His will are unclear or mystifying. Mary is also a study in the pathway forward in God's will. She might have sought elevation in position among those who saw Jesus for who He was, The Messiah, but instead, she remained steadfast with Him all the way to the cross, rather than protect herself. (John19:25); she obediently joined other of Christ's disciples in the Upper Room, waiting as He commanded for the coming of the Holy Spirit (Acts1:14); Mary is a model of responsive obedience, one who lived out her own directive
to the servants of Cana-timeless advice for all ages. *John2:5* His Mother said to the servants, "Whatever He says to you, do it." ~~~~~~~
