this time, I was not able to find the short film clip in the "Magdalena Minute" video devotionals that goes with this lesson with Mary, the mother as Jesus. In our "Reflections of Hope" for this week, I believe that Mary is essential to HIS story and ours. It is for this reason, I am sharing the longer one that I have linked above for today.
"In one moment, Mary’s life forever changed as a result of God choosing to use her to carry out a task that in human terms would be impossible. But as the angel Gabriel said, “Nothing is impossible with God.” None of us will be asked to carry the Son of God as Mary was. However, God does ask us to do something that is also impossible–to faithfully follow Jesus every day."
"Someone has said that to live the Christian life is not difficult; it is impossible."
"The following verses show how impossible it is to live life as a Christian without the help of the Holy Spirit."
"Just like Mary responded in faith by trusting God in her situation, we also need to respond in faith by trusting God to live the Christian life through us."
How can you, like Mary, respond to the Lord?

This is being shared to promote the movie and material as if this is a small group study online to educate all viewers better in the grace of our salvation found in Jesus Christ through the eyes and heart of a woman, deepening our understanding and insights as inspired by this film and study. I will provide the link the last day when I share the entire film."|
