Remember Mary?

Mother& Child

The above is a drawing I did of the Madonna & Child.

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 to 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 know that you will be blessing me even more than I can ever imagine.  Thank you for Mary the Mother of my Saviour – Jesus Christ my Lord.  Amen.

Oil Painting of Jesus as (The Good Shepherd)

Well – do we remember about Mary the Mother of Jesus – what has been written in the Holy Bible?  She must have been a remarkable young woman.  Maybe only around sixteen years of age.  I don’t think she would have been out drinking and doing drugs like some young people (and older ones) are doing now in this world that we live in.

If we could put ourselves in Mary’s shoes – whatever would we think, how would we cope with our everyday living knowing as she did that God had planted His one and only Son into her womb?  Also she was engaged to be married, imagine telling her husband to be what had happened to her.

It could not have been easy for her.

If you are a man reading this your thoughts may have been the same as Joseph who she was engaged to – until of course the Angel told him what had happened.

So you see there is quite a lot to consider when we think of Mary – the Mother of our Lord Jesus who is my Saviour and I pray  that He is yours too.

As it is now getting near to Christmas I believed this would give us food for thought.

* God Bless You over this Christmas Time *

A Special Son

ShepherdSheep2

Matthew:  Chapter 1 verse 21.

She will give birth to a Son

and you are to give him the name

Jesus,

because he will save his people

from their sins.

***

I am so glad that Mary was obedient, because if she had not given birth to Jesus where would you and I be today?  It does not bear to think about it!  Praise God today for the birth of Jesus who also was obedient to Our Heavenly Father to the extent of dying on The Cross for yours and my sins.  I Praise you Heavenly Father that you allowed Your only Son Jesus to come to earth to save us from certain death.  Thank You that we choose the 25th. December to celebrate the Birth of Jesus Christ our Lord being  born on this earth.  Amen.

All of us as Christians know this story above.  How would you feel if you had to give up your Son to save someone.  We really could not do that could we? Or maybe it would be a Daughter that you could be asked to give up to save someone.  Both Sons and Daughters are very precious to us.  Just think how much we love them and then concider just how much God loves us that He gave His only Son to come to Earth for our sakes.  That is incredible and our human brains cannot fathom out the great love that God has for us his people.

Jesus was obedient to His Father in Heaven and all Power on earth is given to Him. 

So He can confidently say in the Bible John: Chapter 14 verse 6.

(No one comes to the Father except by me)

Now is the time if you have not done so already to ask Jesus to come into your heart – your life, if you would like to go to Heaven when your body dies.

All you have to do (if you do not know already) is to repent of your sins (that is to tell God you are sorry for all the wrong things you have done) and ask Jesus to forgive you. Then you can invite Him in – and yes He will be with you.

Unless you ask Him He will not be part of your life – He does not go where He is not wanted.

So  think of all the blessings you will miss out on if you do not invite Him to be with you.
