Day 10 - The Actors: Gabriel, God, and Mary.
Luke 1:26-28 - In the sixth month, the angel
Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee
called Nazareth, (27) to a virgin engaged to a
man named Joseph, of the house of David. The
virgin’s name was Mary. (28) And the angel came
to her and said, “Greetings, favored woman! The
Lord is with you.”
Everyone sees Gabriel’s announcement and actions in these verses. We also learn a lot
about Mary as well, her character and lineage come out. But do you see God? God
arranged this meeting. He cared enough about Mary personally that He wanted her to
know what was happening. He sought her agreement to be the Son’s mother.
God’s love is showcased not only in the Christmas birth of Christ, but also in how He
lovely dealt with Mary.
