Summary: Pastor/ Preacher kids (PK's), we are struggling to find where we fit into our Preacher parent's calling. This sermon deals with the truth that your are destined for someting great. You are not born in to the wrong family. But God has predestined it!
28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
33And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
This passage of scripture deals with the announcement to Mary that she will be the gateway by which the Christ will come into the earth. She is a virgin, engaged to Joseph, who is now founded pregnant through the Holy Ghost.
In the fruit of her womb shall be Great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest. In other word, God will put GREATNESS in the womb of Mary. We need to take note that Mary’s family is not even mentioned in this passage or anywhere in this book. This makes us understand that she is not born out of elite or the famous families through bible history. She is just an ordinary woman minding her own business. It brings me to the understanding that God can choose anyone, to put greatness in them. And that you and I are not excluded.
Acts 10: 34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons…
If we go to the book of Genesis reading the 2nd chapter we find In the 7th verse…
7And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
When we start talking about God we need to firstly understand how great God is…
- He opened his mouth in Genesis and called into existence the plants, animals, the moon, stars and the sun
- He is the one who put in place the law as to when the sun rise and when it goes down.
- He sat the seasons in place so that the follow in the right sequence
- He sits on the circle of the earth. He set the exact speed of the earth’s rotation around the sun. That is the sun rotates any slower we would burn death in the heat of the sun and if it moves any slow we would die of the cold.
- He is so great that when He looked for someone to swear, he couldn’t find anyone greater then Himself to swear by… So he swears by himself.
This great God who says I am who I says I am. I am… means that He is anything and everything that we could ever want him to be… He is God.
It is this great God who said; let us make man into our own image. This man must be great as I am great. For the man to be great as I am great, he needs to have in him what I have in me.
So after forming man from the dust of the earth, the body of the man lays on the floor…death and empty. Until God bended over and blow in the nostrils on the man, a part of Him in womb of the man. God shared a piece of His greatness with the man. Just like with Mary, He placed a piece of His greatness in us and wrapped it up in our womb.
