Dec 19 - Announcement to the Favored One

What is it like to be favoured by the Almighty God? What must it have been like for Mary to be chosen by God to be included in fulfilling His redemptive plan for all mankind? 

The story of Christ's birth begins with Mary humbly accepting that God's ways are higher than hers, and in her willingness of heart she demonstrates how each one of us should also respond to God's gift of favour to us.

Are you willing to receive that free gift that God has presented to us in Jesus Christ. He is our Saviour. He came with one purpose in mind, to redeem what was lost, to save and restore all men unto a right relationship with God. It cost Him his life, but it was given so that we might have life. "I have come that you might have life and have it more abundantly." (John 10:10b)

You are favoured by God, highly favoured. 
"For God so loved the world that He gave His One and Only Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life." 
(John 3:16)

The choice is for each and every one of us to make. Will you choose to believe this Christmas. Will you accept Jesus as the reason for the season. Christ is Christmas.

Christ in Christmas

Take time this advent season to re-align your focus on Jesus Christ.
He is the only reason for this season.

Take time each day to read the Scripture passage and to listen to the song.
