Advent Series: The “Yes” that changed mankind

Mary said,

“Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word” – Luke 1:38

If Mary’s story teaches us anything about our own lives, it is that our God is a God of surprises. He is also the Father of Possibility – the maker of miracles.

Mary also teaches us what God can achieve through simple people like us if only we say, ‘YES‘ to God’s power working in and through us.

What are the impossible situations in your life?

Broken relationships that are unlikely to be reconciled? That friend who betrayed your trust?
The person who cheated on you? Your parents who you won’t talk to?

Christ wants to do the impossible in your life this Christmas season.

‘For Him all things are possible’ – Luke 1:37.

There is no situation in your life that is too hopeless.

On this Christmas Eve, let us ask for grace to help the impossible become a reality.

Exercise

Can you call/text him/her today and patch things up?
