Music Reflection from Jim Rowe, Minister of Music

Luke 1: 26-38

[26] In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth,

[27] to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.

[28] And he came to her and said, "Hail, O favored one, the Lord is with you!"

[29] But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and considered in her mind what sort of greeting this might be.

[30] And the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.

[31] And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus.

[32] He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Most High;

and the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David,

[33] and he will reign over the house of Jacob for ever;

and of his kingdom there will be no end."

[34] And Mary said to the angel, "How shall this be, since I have no husband?"

[35] And the angel said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you,

and the power of the Most High will overshadow you;

therefore the child to be born will be called holy,

the Son of God.

[36] And behold, your kinswoman Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son; and this is the sixth month with her who was called barren.

[37] For with God nothing will be impossible."

[38] And Mary said, "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word." And the angel departed from her.


Reflection


Looking back on this moment in the life of Mary, one has to wonder at her ability to put herself in God's hands. What level of faith is this, that she can praise her Lord when so much is uncertain. Life was harsh back then and cultural norms were different. She faced difficulties that were daunting, even today.
