Day 12 - The Actors: What Gabriel told Mary.

Luke 1:34-37 - Mary asked the angel, “How can

this be, since I have not had sexual relations

with a man?” (35) The angel replied to her:

“The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the

power of the Most High will overshadow you.

Therefore, the holy one to be born will be

called the Son of God. (36) “And consider your

relative Elizabeth—even she has conceived a son

in her old age, and this is the sixth month for

her who was called childless. (37) For nothing

will be impossible with God.”

Zechariah dared to doubt what Gabriel told him, whereas Mary’s question is along the

lines of ‘How is this possible?’ God has time for honest questions. How Mary came to

carry the Christ child was a divine miracle. Interestingly when we accept and believe

Jesus died in our place we experience a divine miracle too! Our sins are forgiven and

we become a member of God’s extended family! For nothing will be impossible with

God.

The Christmas story reveals God’s power is unstoppable; nothing is impossible with

God!
