What Child is This?

Mary – Woman of Faith

Luke 1:26-38


1. Mary is at the                  of the Christmas Story but she is not the                                    of the story.

26 In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, 27 to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. 28 The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”




2. To                     the great faith of Mary we must                               the world she lived in and the                         of her situation. 

29 Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. 30 But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. 31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, 33 and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”


3. Great faith                  God to do great                 . 34 “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?”

35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. 36 Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month. 37 For no word from God will ever fail.”



4. God                  on the faith of Mary and God

                    her with the                           birth of Jesus, our Savior and Lord.

38 “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her.



Two Traps to Avoid

We take Mary’s faith for                          and we


We                  her faith to a                      so high no other human can reach it.




The Way God Works

He looks for                                      asking them to                       in faith and move                 ; when they do, He uses their faith to             the world.
