I am the Lord’s Servant

Happy Mother’s Day to all you mom’s out there! I spent quite some time looking at all the different cards this weekend. Now, is it just me, or do you always end up picking the first good card you read, even after looking another 10 minutes!?

Anyways, there are so many things we can learn from mom’s, and in the theme of mothers, let’s learn from one in the book of Luke. Let me share a short verse:

“I am the Lord’s servant…May your word to me be fulfilled.” – Luke 1:38

Do you happen to know who had this response to God’s call on her? It was Mary! Earlier in Luke Chapter 1, Mary was just told by an angel of the Lord that she would be the mother of Jesus, the Messiah, even though she was a virgin. How intimidating would that be? I would be like, “Slow down. First of all, I’m a virgin, it isn’t physically possible! Secondly, even if God did make it happen, what will the world think since I am unmarried!? You have got the wrong person!!”. But no, “I am the Lord’s servant…May your word to me be fulfilled” was her response.

Yes, she had questions. And yes, she was probably scared of what might happen. But she responded with faith in God and the heart of a servant. She didn’t know how it would happen, or what the world would think of her, but set her eye’s on the Lord and basically said “Lead and I will follow”. How will you respond to God when He calls you? Will you say “You’ve got the wrong person” or will you respond “I am Your servant, may your word to me be fulfilled?”. Let’s make it the latter.

In God’s Love,
