It might be impossible for any of us to put ourselves completely in Mary’s shoes. The announcement from an angel gave Mary a mind and heart full of information. She would be the mother of the Messiah.
While we can’t imagine what it would be like to be her, we do know how she responded? She, for all of us, is the perfect example of how to respond when God calls us…
“Mary responded, ‘I am the Lord’s servant. May everything you have said about me come true.’ And then the angel left her.” (Luke 1:38 NLT)
