The beginning

on December 19, 2003

What an amazing time of year…. celebrating the love of a God who loves us so much, he came to earth to experience all that we have to experience. because we could not remedy the distance from God that we had created through our sinful natures, he took it upon himself to take our sins and pay for them. Thus ensuring that as long as we accepted Him into our lives, we are ensured a spot in his heavenly house. the ultimate sacrifice begins here. in the birth of a son to a jewish virgin. the son who would die on a cross and forgive us.
imagine the shock of mary when an angel came to her and said, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favour with God. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.” (Luke 1:30-33) i'm sure that thus far she had been a very good jewish girl, was betrothed to be wed to a good jewish man, and to suddenly find out she was pregnant? her faith that God was going to take care of her is astonishing, especially since she was so very young.
and yet, her only reply was, “I am the Lord's servant… May it be to me as you have said.” (Luke 1:38) her faith is a testimony to us some thousands of years later. a faith to believe that God will always do as he says, and that he loves us so much. “For nothing is impossible with God.” (Luke 1:37)
