I sat and thought about Mary, mother of Jesus. What a task she was asked to do.
Most scholars think she was between 12-14 years old. They allowed men to have very young wives.
Mary met Joseph and they traveled together.
Suddenly, Mary was pregnant. She was only engaged and not married. I wonder what Joseph thought. “Should I quietly leave mary?” An angel came to him and said, “Fear not!” Mary will conceive the child of God.” Joseph understood, and stayed with Mary.
Mary was very scared and asked why she was chosen. Another angel came to her and told her, ” You will be the mother of God’s son. Call Him Jesus.”
So they went to Bethlehem and gave birth to Jesus. They had to stay in a dirty barn with many animals in it. Mary wrapped Jesus in swaddling clothes.
This is where I really started wondering when I read this in the Bible. What did Mary know about this little child of hers? I found a song that covers it real well, and I am going to share it with you:
Mary Did You Know?
Words by Mark Lowry
Mary, did you know that your baby boy would one day walk on water?
Mary, did you know your baby boy would save our sons and daughters?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy has come to make new; this child that you delivered will soon deliver you?
Mary, did you know that you baby boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy would calm a storm with His hand?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
Mary, did you know that when you kiss your little baby boy, you are kissing the face of God?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy will rule all the nations?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy was Heaven’s perfect lamb?
Mary, did you know that the sleeping child you are holding is the great, the Great I Am?
That cleared everything up for me. Jesus is the son of God, and Mary is His mother.
Be blessed knowing that Jesus has the perfect CHRISTmas present for you. Eternal life.
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
