Through the Eyes of Mary Part #5

istock_000007349205smallIt’s hard to grasp that God would use the obedience of a teenage girl to fulfill the Old Testament Prophecy about the Messiah.

He would be born of a virgin, He would be of the House of David, He would be born in Bethlehem, He would be preceded by a messenger, He would preach the good news, He would be anointed by the Spirit, He would enter Jerusalem on a donkey, He would be betrayed by a friend, He would be rejected by the Jews, He would be forsaken by his disciples, He would be accused by false witnesses, He would be beaten and spit upon, He would have his hands and feet pierced, He would cry out my God why has thou forsaken me, and He would be executed between two thieves.

It must have been such an honor to be chosen but it must have also have been so painful. For the one who gave birth to the child in the manger now ends up at the foot of the Cross watching her first born die for the sins of the world. There had been a time when this child had followed Mary wherever she went and now she would spend the remainder of her life following in the steps of the Savior for the World…Her Son.

He would also rise from the dead, He would ascend into heaven and sit at the right hand of God, and He is coming again.

Our worship becomes a sweet aroma to God when it is lived out in daily obedience. We can learn so much from the life of Mary. While her life was not perfect she was determined to make God the center of her life. It makes you wonder what God is waiting to do through your obedience. He has a habit of using ordinary people to do extraordinary things.

When I make God the center of my life I can’t help but worship.
