The Mary Miracle
Bible Text: Luke 1:26‑38 | Preacher: Pastor Steve | Series: The Best Christmas Ever
The Mary Miracle
The Word Became Flesh! Mary was a virgin who miraculously conceived a child by the seed of God that entered her womb. Mary was a woman who had never been in sexual relationship with a man. Life was conceived by a miracle of God. This was a ONE TIME ONLY MIRACLE! This miracle happened only once in ALL of human history past, present or future.
The Birth Of Jesus Is A Miracle
The miracle happened AT THE EXACT RIGHT TIME and IN THE EXACT RIGHT PLACE and TO THE EXACT RIGHT PERSON!
Luke 1:26‑27 Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary.
We Too Are Highly Favored Ones!
Luke 1:28-29 And having come in, the angel said to her, Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women! But when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was…(Ephesians 1:6)
The Lord knows where we live!
The Lord knows our name!
The Lord Is Faithful To His Promises And Commitments
Luke 1:30-34 Then the angel said to her, Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end. Then Mary said to the angel, How can this be, since I do not know a man?
Trust in the Word of God
By The POWER Of The Holy Spirit
Luke 1:35 And the angel answered and said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.
No Word of God Is Without Power!
Luke 1:36-37 Now indeed, Elizabeth your relative has also conceived a son in her old age; and this is now the sixth month for her who was called barren. For with God nothing will be impossible.
The Amplified Bible: For with God nothing is ever impossible and no word from God shall be without power or impossible of fulfillment.
We Are Transformed By Christmas
Mary was TRANSFORMED by the POWER of the Holy Spirit
Luke 1:38 Then Mary said, Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word. And the angel departed from her.
The Best Christmas Ever!
Born Again By God’s Grace!
John 3:3-8 …I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus said to Him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born? Jesus answered, most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit…So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.
