FRESH BREAD: Mary found favor with God (He was pleased with her) and because of this, He gave her the honor of becoming the mother of His son Jesus. This yielded vessel practiced laying aside her WILL for the sake of her Adonai, and He rewarded her for that. In fact, after getting over the shock of what the angel had just said to her Mary said, "May it be to me as you have said” (Luke 1:30-38). Laying aside her will in this particular instance was easy because it was her LIFESTYLE.
The best birthday gift you can give Jesus this Christmas season is the gift of your WILL. And when you do, please don’t take it back. Selah!
