Pledged to be Married
Matthew: Chapter 1 verse 18.
This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about:
His Mother Mary was pledged to be married
to Joseph but before they came together,
she was found be be with child through
The Holy Spirit.
Mary must have been a beautiful young woman spiritually to be so obedient to God saying yes to what He asked of her. How many of us can truly say that we are obedient to submit ourselves to the ways of The LORD? Dear LORD God I pray today that I may be more obedient to your voice and not to my own wants. In being obedient to you I kow that you will be a blessing me even more than I can ever imagine. Thank you for Mary the Mother of my Saviour – Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen.
The above is from the book: ‘Drink from the Cup’ by J.M.R. Larman.
It makes you think dosn’t it – what would we do in the same situation that Mary was in. She must have only been about 16yrs. old or somewhere in her teenage years. Now adays most teenagers would laugh at the idea but – if an Angel appeared before them what ever would they do? Most probably faint on the spot or try to run. But Mary listened to the Angel and what a blessing for us that she did, so that now we can invite Jesus into our hearts into our lives and know that in Eternity we can be with God our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ if indeed we do invite Him to be Lord of our Life.
Just think how beautiful the Angels must be in the Heavenly Realm.
I Pray that you have a lovely Day today.
** God Bless You **
