Day Thirteen – Luke 1:26-38


If you have the time, please share your verses and comments below. Looking forward to what God shows you!

My verse: Luke 1:35 “The angel replied, ‘The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby to be born will be holy, and He will be called the Son of God.”

And here it is. In this verse in Luke. God distilled to baby – embryo in a womb of a virgin. Father God, the miracle and mystery of this is so profound! Jesus. Born from Mary, but the Son of God. Legally, Joseph’s son – who was in the line of David. Thank You for entering our human world … for leaving infinite glory for a finite space in a messed-up planet … for us!

Love this quote from Charles Swindoll: “Because Jesus was born of a woman, He was fully human; because He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, He was at the same time fully God. Don’t ever let anyone tell you that the Virgin Birth isn’t important!” He’s right. All Scripture is God-breathed and true. Including the Virgin Birth part.

  • My verse is 38: Mary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” And then the angel left her. What a different response than Zechariah’s! Mary had more reason to doubt…and to protest! Plus, she didn’t have the education Zechariah had. He was a priest. If anyone should have immediately believed and humbly accepted, it was Zechariah. But Mary, the less educated, the one who risked stoning for appearing to have betrayed her betrothed, simply says, “I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.” I’m astonished by such a response. I can only hope that I would so willingly and humbly accept my calling with as believing and pure a heart as Mary.
