A week ago, we dove into the life of Bathsheba... At that time, you were invited to explore the answer to the question: Are there certain character traits God looks for as He chooses His vessels of service?
God doesn't always pick the qualified...rather, He does a work of Grace in each of us in order to qualify us.
He gives us second chances, as His vessels of honor, sanctified, and useful for His service.
He causes our stories to be redemptive, and restores them for the purpose of making them meaningful for His glory...and, to which others may relate.
Because of the stories in Scripture we are assured:
our stories matter!
And, yet, in the case of Mary, we see a different kind of story entirely.
So, with that introduction, we begin to look at the mother of Jesus...and dig a little more into her character and her life.
To start, I invite you to go to Bible Gateway and read Matthew 1 & 2, as well as, Luke 1 & 2, for a Scriptural understanding of this amazing woman!
