Mary's Servant Attitude

I've been learning a lot lately about Mary (mother of Jesus). Of course teaching a series on her forces learning. But, there's one verse, from her story as a teenager, that has been particulary challenging. It's Luke 1:38 (just the beginning portion). It's her response to the angel after he announces she will give birth to the Messiah.

It reads,

I am the Lord's servant.

Questions to ponder
- Can you say this to Jesus today and really mean it?

- What does it mean to say something like this?

- What doesn't it mean?

- What kind of life would one have to live to say this and mean it?
