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.
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?
Welcome to Thursday Thinking. Every Thursday you will find thoughts on various topics I'm interested in.
Who am I? I'm a husband and father. I enjoy reading, hiking, fishing, bowling, and golfing. I work as a lead pastor at a Nazarene Church. Oh, and I enjoy a good cup of coffee and conversation whenever I can!
