Scripture Sabbath: Luke 1:30-32, 37-38

“And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favor with God.

And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and being forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give him the throne of his father David: …

For with God nothing shall be impossible.

And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word.”

Such faithful obedience from this special, humble woman. Was she aware of Isaiah’s prophecy? “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” (Isa. 7:14) Did she perhaps realize that she was about to begin the fulfillment of that prophecy? Throughout the first two chapters of Matthew, we see repeated that Mary “kept all these things and pondered them in her heart.” She must have been such a spiritually strong woman, both in mortality and in premortality, to be chosen as the mother of the Son of God.
