The Angel Came to Mary
Read: Luke 1:26-38
Special verse: And Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her. – Luke 1:38
Discuss: Generations before Mary was even born, God had a special plan for her. Mary was a young, unmarried woman when Gabriel told her she was going to have God’s son. How did she respond to the news? Why do you think God sent Jesus to earth as a baby instead of a grown-up?
