Mary, highly favored

Sow this post into others:


Why did God Almighty choose Virgin Mary, the little girl from Nazareth, to be the mother of his only son Jesus Christ? What was in her that attracted him to perform great deeds in her life and to entrust her? The qualities that prepared Mary for greatness can be imparted to you also because God is no respecter of man.


In his salutation and throughout their conversation, Archangel Gabriel mentioned to Mary more than once that she is highly favored by God. Why was she highly favored by him? Maybe because she was so beautiful that God wanted to bless his son with a beautiful mom or maybe because she was the only virgin in her town? No, Mary caught the attention of heaven because she was a humble vessel for such a high calling & mandate. She was favored because she was humble โ€œGod opposes the proud but favors the humble.” James 4:6. Mary also confirms this by saying: โ€œFor He took notice of His lowly servant girlโ€ Luke 1:48. Humility is obeying and serving God and saying yes to all of his will not a part of it no matter the high price of it โ€œMary responded, “I am the Lord’s servant. May EVERYTHING you have said about me come true.” And then the angel left her.โ€ Luke 1:38. Jesus Christ is the highest model of humility and in the light of his humility other humilities look like pride, Philippians 2:7-10.

Treasuring Godโ€™s Word

Another great quality that was attached to Mary is that she was serious about Godโ€™s word, promises & prophecies. You often read this about her: โ€œMary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often.โ€ Luke 2:19. In her Magnificat, Mary recites the promises of God about the promised Messiah & the plan of salvation, she knew it well and she was expecting it. Because she disciplined herself all her life on meditating on the word of God she became a vessel of the truth, a vessel of the promise. God looked at her from eternity and said: โ€œMan, this girl loves my word; she really knows how to meditate on it until she can get pregnant with it and birth it. I will reward her now with the LIVING WORD, Jesus himselfโ€.

Mary was a great woman of God but in all her greatness she always knew her place & her position and never exalted herself like Lucifer did to be an object of worship, Isaiah 14:14-15. What a grace! When the wise men came to the house, it is written that they bowed to baby Jesus only โ€œThey entered the house and saw the child with His mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped HIM.โ€ Matthew 2:11. In her magnificat, Mary clearly called God her savior โ€œand my spirit rejoices in God my Saviorโ€ Luke 1:47. Calling God your savior means you need salvation! Being virgin doesnโ€™t mean you are not a sinner, my sister was a virgin before she got married but she is a sinner who needs Godโ€™s salvation, can you see the difference? Jesus died for all humanity on the cross including his mother who was the first to receive her salvation at the feet of the cross. Do you want to be like Mary? Be the first one at the feet of the cross and receive your salvation.

Are you highly favored? I mean, are you humble & do you treasure Godโ€™s word in your heart? If yes, then get yourself ready for greatness!

Glory to God
