Grace for Mary and grace for you!

I don’t mean to burst anyone’s bubble about Mary, but you know she was in need of salvation just like everyone else.

She was just a young Jewish girl who’s only qualification to be the mother of the Messiah was she was Jewish, from Judah, in the lineage of King David, and a virgin. There were probably other young Jewish girls that also qualified in that way.

But Father chose Mary over all the others. It was by His grace she was chosen.

And having come in, the angel said to her, “Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!” Luke 1:28

Highly favored means God’s grace.

It is the same grace that makes you highly favored.

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. Eph 2:8-9

Mary could lay no more claim to doing something special to gain God’s attention than you!
It is God’s grace that brought Jesus into this world though Mary for you and me.

You are highly favored!

Abba, I praise Your grace for me through Jesus, YES&AMEN
