Advent Devotions: The Messiah’s Mom

December 9, 2007 by  
Filed under Devotions

There was plenty in the Old Testament about the Messiah, but not a word about being the Messiah’s Mom. So when Gabriel appears to Mary to deliver the news about her role in God’s plan, the young girl has no Scriptural or historical playbook to work from. We can try to imagine ourselves in Mary’s shoes, but I don’t expect we can ever really grasp the enormity of her situation. Mary must have known there could be problems. But rather than focusing on the size of her problems, she chose to trust in the size of her God. You can read our entire Advent Devotional on Mary for additional reflection.

We’re featuring a different Advent Devotional on each of the next five Sundays, closing the series on Dec. 23. Our first devotional focused on Zechariah and his visit from Gabriel. We hope these meditations will be a blessing to you!
