Mary did not resist the news that she would birth Jesus; as God?s servant, she was solely concerned with doing what he wished.

I. What was God doing here?

II. Why did God choose Mary? Because of her receptivity.

III. Why did God choose Mary? Because of her humility.

IV. Why did God choose Mary? Because she was a servant.
