If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Mary

I love Mary, the mother of Jesus. I love the fact that she was such a young girl when she was visited by the angel and told that she would give birth to the Son of God, the Savior of the World. I love that she was so willing. Luke 1:38a says: "And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word."


My prayer is that I'll be more like Mary. That whatever the Lord asks of me, I will do. Without complaining and whining and without fear of looking foolish and without worrying about what everyone will think of me. I mean, if anyone really put themselves out there, it was Mary. But her response was "be it unto me according to thy word." What an awesome and brave person she was.

"Lord, help me to hear your voice and always be willing to do whatever you ask of me."
