Day 11 - The Actors: What Gabriel told Mary
Luke 1:31-33 - Now listen: You will conceive
and give birth to a son, and you will name him
Jesus. (32) He will be great and will be called
the Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will
give him the throne of his father David.
(33) He will reign over the house of Jacob
forever, and his kingdom will have no end.”
The CHRISTmas story is one miracle after another. That God would take on human
form. Wow. And Mary gets the greatest privilege any woman would ever be given. And
His name? ‘Jesus’ means something very special. His name speaks of His character
and work. Translated it means ‘Savior’ or ‘He will save His people from their sins’. His
name reveals His mission; He came to die in our place!
Even the choice of our Lord’s name tells a part of the Christmas story!
