TODAY’S MESSAGE
DECEMBER 5 | UNEXPECTED CALLING | Luke 1:26-38
Mary’s life was interrupted and forever changed by the visit of an angel. Her faithful acceptance of God’s calling for her life demonstrates how attune she was to what God was doing in the world. Mary shows us how to handle the challenge of decisions that come in ways we cannot predict and how we can take the next faithful step in life.
