Introduction

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.

Conclusion

The course of all human history relied on the answer that Mary gave and the decision she made, just as the future of the world may rely on our answers to the call of God on our lives.
