Your Adventure Begins When You Say “Yes” to God- {Luke 2}

Welcome back to week 2 of our Living Like Jesus: Luke 1-8 online Bible study!

I’m so glad you’re joining us!

Let’s get started!

One word that stood out to me as I read and mediated on Luke 2 this past week was {Obedience}.

Mary and Joseph were both obedient to God and His plan for their lives…..even when they didn’t understand the plan.

When I was a little girl, I remember wondering why God choose Mary instead of me to be the mother of Jesus. “What was so special about her?” I remember thinking. Now as a mother myself, I see one of the reasons why God choose Mary…..she was obedient. I love reading her response to the angel when he told her she would have a child…

“I am the Lord’s servant.” Mary answered. “May it be to me as you have said.”- Luke 1:38

Mary didn’t understand God’s plan for her life at the time she said these words…..yet she trusted and obeyed Him anyway.

What is God wanting you to trust and obey Him with today? What actions can you take this week to live more like Mary and obey God with your life….walking with Him in obedience.

I firmly believe God has an exciting adventure for all of us…..but we first have to take that step of faith….that step of obedience and trust Him. Our wonderful adventures begin with one step, are you ready to take it?

My prayer for us this week is that we will put our faith into action and like Mary….obey even when we don’t see the whole plan.

As we read chapter 2, notice how obedient Mary and Joseph were, even though they weren’t perfect, God still did something mighty through them for His glory ……God can do something mighty through you too!

Here is this week’s video….I hope you enjoy!
