The Lord is with you! | Week of December 8th

From the sermon series: Hope

The Lord is with you!

“And having come in, the angel said to her: ‘Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!’”
Luke 1:28

Mary is often looked to as an example of strong faith. The angel Gabriel was sent to her, and he explained that miraculous things would happen to her, that she would bear a child, the Son of God and Savior of Israel. This would certainly be a lot for any human to process, but she submits herself to the will of God (Luke 1:38). Because she trusts God and submits to His will, He provides for and helps her.

We believe that by word and sacrament we can be made worthy in Christ to experience direct fellowship with God. Therefore, like Mary in Luke 2:19, we must keep the promises of God in our heart and ponder on them.


Make a list of the promises of God. Schedule some time out of your day to reflect on these truths.

Ask God to guide you away from that which can drive you toward doubting His promises.
