None of the other gospels goes into the specifics of this story, so we need to read Luke. Gabriel was a busy angel in those days!
- What were Mary’s issues/concerns about this message from the angel?
- If an angel came to you and disrupted your life, what would be your issues/concerns?
- I wonder why God chose to use the appearance of scandal to surround the birth of His Son?
“Creative and awesome God, I know that you do not need another set of parents for the birth of your son, but there are places and circumstances in our day and age that need your intervention. Do not allow my list of doubts and wonderings “how can this be” stand in the way of your using my life. Amen”
