EPISODE 117: MARY (Be Willing Series)
3 days ago
Mary, the mother of the one true King! What an amazing task to be chosen by God the mother the Son of Man…to give birth to Him as well as raise Him for God’s will. Can you imagine raising your son knowing that He will one day give His life so that others might live? One would think this women to be of noble blood (which Mary was coming from the line of King David but all nobility had been lost in the years since David’s rule), she would be educated, well to-do, somebody. But instead, God chose a peasant girl whom not much is knows of. She lived in the poor and nothing town of Nazareth and was young…very young. But the one thing that Mary did have that was measured above all else was her willingness. She was willing to be chosen to do God’s will even when it meant she might loser her upcoming marriage and reputation. She was willing even though she had nothing to really offer this King. She was willing even though she was young and had not even really experienced life.
How about you? Are you willing? This poses an interesting question to me, because although I would like to think I am willing, when it comes down to it I’m not sure. Honestly speaking we have to be faithful in the little things to be entrusted with the big things. The little things…do I spend time with God daily? Do I love others like I should? Do I make just choices? Things that should be daily and just a part of who I am. Could I have kept the secret of who Jesus was until it was His time? So many questions with unanswered questions.
But this I do know…it doesn’t matter because Mary already did it. She offered her life to serve God. Her faith in her heart made her strong enough to grow Jesus in her womb. And she never left His side even that day on the cross. Mary was not worried about position or recognition but willingness and obedience. How beautiful is she?
