Mary's Legacy


When Mary was visited by the Angel Gabriel all those years ago, times were very different.

It would have been a great scandal for an un-married woman to become pregnant. It was even more outrageous to claim He is the Son of God. That would have been blasphemy surely!

Yet despite her fears of shame, rejection and ridicule, not to mention fear for her own safety, Mary trusted God and said "Yes".

She agreed to be the Mother of Jesus.

So, what is her legacy to us?

Obedience and trust.

Obedience and trust in God despite what must have been a very dangerous situation for her, and her family.

Are we that obedient and trusting when God speaks to us?

  1. I had a Godly woman tell me last week there was faith and then there was trust and they were not the same. Trust I believe comes on the coat tail of faith. Yes, I you are right--we cannot imagine what it must have been like for Mary--the gossip--the whispers--and more than likely always being known for the scandal---and yet she was obedient. Inspiring!
    Blessings, Friend!

    1. You're so right about trust, Lulu. We can have Faith, weak as it may be at times; but when things go wrong ... do we still have trust?

      God bless you.
