“I am the Lord’s servant” (Luke 1:38)
-It’s a great way for us to answer Him when He calls to us also!
The baby changed everything for Mary, but He’s still changing everything for us who get to know Him by faith.
Many of us have a ‘story’ of how we came to faith in Christ…how ‘I once was lost, but now am found, was blind but now I see’.
Others grew up in the Church, being taught of the love, grace and beauty of God, and the wisdom of following Him and His Word from early in life.
You may not have a ‘dramatic’ story of conversion to faith.
None of that really matters.
What matters–for real–is the love you have for the Lord now. The willingness you have to love and serve Him, and to follow where He leads, investing in the priorities He leads you to.
Those are the things that will really matter!
Listen to Faith Hill’s beautiful song:
Consider and Discuss:
How did you come to know and believe in the Lord, Jesus Christ?
How has He influenced your life?
In what ways are you showing Him your love for Him and willingness to submit to Him in faith and trust–like Mary did?
Pray that the Lord would increase your faith and help you to say ‘yes’!
