Jesus Chix: Mary

Over the last few days, I’ve been reading about Jesus’ mom, Mary and how Gabriel came & announced Jesus’ birth to her.  Mary was an AMAZING chick!!  She wasn’t married, lived in a male dominated society & became pregnant out of wedlock, overshadowed by the Holy Spirit.  According to the religious & traditional norms of her day, she should’ve been killed.  But she was brave and courageous.  She spent a few months with her elderly cousin, Elizabeth, who was miraculously pregnant in her old age and I think these months helped both women:

  • Mary – who was young, vulnerable & probably somewhat naive when it came to issues related to pregnancy
  • Elizabeth – elderly, toward the end of her pregnancy & probably tired, like we get in our third trimester

Mary, the mother of Jesus, a teenage girl, pregnant without being married – carrying in her womb the Savior of the world.  Let’s live like Mary:  Luke 1:45 “blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her by the Lord.”
