Christ Born in Us

Mary gave birth to the Son of God by the Holy Spirit. The angel said to Mary, "You have found favor with God," and she responded, "I am the Lord's servant."

Each of us has also found favor with God because He loved us so much He sent His only Son to redeem us from our sin to a forever life with Him. When we accept that He did that for us personally, our response to the love He lavishes on us will be to carry His Son in our hearts and take the good news of salvation to the ends of the earth. Like Mary, we deliver Christ with our own set of gifts, talents and resources.

Lord, here I am. Send me--only with your help, for I cannot hope to do this on my own. Expand the boundaries of my ministry so more people will come to experience your amazing love. Amen.

I love your points: we've all found favor with God, our response should be to carry Jesus in our heart and deliver Him to the world with our own set of gifts. Thanks for this wonderful devotion!
