Happy December! Christmas is on its way and we couldn’t think of a better way to ready our hearts together than by spending the whole month reading through the story of Jesus’ birth and finding some practical ways to love others. Together, we will work through an Advent reading plan provided by LCBC Church through YouVersion. Our prayer is that as you read about the greatest story ever told, your hearts will be readied for Christ’s arrival.
“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her.
Mary concludes her time with the angel by saying, “I am the Lord’s servant.”
Pray that you can have the same attitude that Mary has today – how would your day look today if you were (literally) the Lord’s servant?
Take a half hour at some point today and read Mary’s response to the angel over and over. In the quiet – ask God for a heart like Mary’s – open to God’s leading.
