Each year something about the Christmas story grabs my attention and kind of becomes my focus for the season. Last year, it was Zechariah’s prophetic song at the end of Luke 1 and the wonderful line, “…because of the tender mercy of our God…”
This year, it is Mary’s response to the angel. In Luke 1:38 she simply says, “I am the Lord’s servant. May it be to me as you have said.” What beautiful obedience. May I be as submissively obedient as she.
