Mary had a decision to make. Would she accept the message from the angel Gabriel or would she decide to not take part in it.
She could have said ‘not me’ when told that she was chosen to carry Jesus in her womb, to be His mother. She had the same free will that we have today. But she chose to submit to God’s will. She said “behold thy handmaiden of the Lord. Be it unto me according to thy word”
Can you imagine the blessings she would have missed out on if she refused to follow God’s plan for her life?
We are all given a choice of how we respond to God’s call. Our response can be ‘not me Lord’ or it can be ‘here am I, lord, send me’ How will you respond when faced with a decision?
