Scripture: "In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin's name was Mary" (Luke 1:26-27).
Reflection: Through Mary's obedience, God Himself comes to us. He doesn't send any more prophets. He comes Himself. The long awaited Messiah is here. God doesn't send an angel to deliver us. He delivers us. He sends an angel to give us this message, this good news. It's time! God keeps His promises.
Questions: Is there any situation going on in my life right now where I could be more obedient to God's will? Is God giving me a message today? Am I willing to see things differently?
Prayer: Dear Lord, you keep your word. Almighty God, you mean what you say, and you have revealed that you love us. Help me to grow in your love. Help me to accept the promise you made to be with us forever and for always. Please send my heart the message of your unconditional love for me, and prepare my heart for your coming this Christmas. Jesus, make my life new, and give me the peace you promised your followers. Amen.
Join us again tomorrow for another spiritual reflection. May God Bless you.
