Scripture: Luke 1:26-45, John 19:25
This sermon focuses on Mary the mother of Jesus. Who was Mary? Why was she chosen to carry the Son of God in her womb? She was to be the surrogate mother and protector of her Creator, while at the same time Jesus was her Savior. Mary was privileged in her role, but she experienced a sword piercing her heart. There is a spiritual lesson in all of this.
