Servant Of The Lord


And Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.”
Luke 1:38 (NIV)

What a shock it must have been to Mary. First, to see an angel would have been an incredible experience. But to have that angel say that you were going to have a baby through Immaculate Conception and that the baby would be God in the flesh would have been incomprehensible. But instead of trying to get her mind around it, Mary let her faith understand. In love, trust and obedience she submitted to the word of God through the angel. How did she do it? A better question may be, “Why did she submit to such an inconceivable experience?” She was able to say, “Let it be to me according to your word” because she was confident in who she was. She had made up her mind before this ever happened that she was a servant of the Lord. What a difference it makes in our life when that issue is settled. You see the word, “No” and “Lord” cannot go together. The only possible answer to the Lordship of Christ is, “Yes, Your will be done.” Today, come to God like young Mary did. Say, “Behold, I am a servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.”

Dear God, I desire Your will in my life. Like Mary, I come to You today and say, “Behold, I am a servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.”

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
