Luke-The Investigative Gospel
First Mary, Now Us
Luke 1:26-38

This morning, I want you to try and remember what it was like to be fifteen.

Scholars tell us that Mary was between 13 and 16, to be more exact most think she was about 15 when the angel Gabriel gave her this message.

She had every reason to be terrified by this news. Who on earth was going to believe such ridiculous story?

A mind that holds reason as ultimate and unbending will never Experience the miracle of Christ’s birth.

It comes down to a question of faith, a question of faith first answered by a scared fifteen year old girl.

If God were to tell you that the eternity of others hung in the balance of your willingness to carry Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and share him with others, how would you answer?

But the question is still the same; are you willing to share Jesus with the world?

Who was willing to take that risk for you?

It is up to you now to share with others the Good News.

I think that most folks are afraid that they will do or say something wrong and therefore don’t even try.

Do you care enough about the people around you to respond?
