Sermon Notes

     Last week we looked at the character traits seen in Joseph’s life that were important in God’s choosing him to help raise Jesus, the Son of God. Today we’re addressing the angel Gabriel’s message to Mary about God choosing her to bring Christ, the Messiah, into the world.

     There is a lot of confusion as to what the angel’s words to Mary meant. We will look at the specifics of the announcement and how she responded to his words when she considered what the public, her family, and her fiancé might think about this surprise pregnancy.
