We Are Highly Favoured - Luke 1: 26-38
4th Sunday of Advent
Key Verses: 30-32 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favour with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High.
Christmas is here!! It is a time when we share gifts, eat and drink lots. However let us remember the real gift for this season…….Jesus (the Son of the Most High). In our lesson this week Mary had a visit from an angel called Gabriel telling her how highly favoured she was by God. So favoured that He gave her the most important task ever; to bring our Lord and Saviour into this world. We may not have a role as important as Mary’s but we have an important role nonetheless. Our role is to spread the word of God’s divine love for us. ‘The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favoured! The Lord is with you.”’ So this week let us reach out to one person and let them know how ‘highly favoured’ by God they are that He sent His only begotten Son to save us. Christmas is here!!
Merry Christmas and have a blessed week
