The Women in the Christmas Story

Luke 1:26-45, Luke 2:36-38

How do we make the most of the age and stage of life we are in, and joyfully use our gifts and talents for God’s glory?

  • Let’s identify which third of life we are currently in, 
  • Recognize the importance of that time of life, and 
  • See value in the contribution we  have the responsibility to make. 

Luke 1:26-38

1. Mary
1 Timothy 4:12 Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.”

Things to consider:

If you are in this age group…

  • How can you use your gifts, talents, and passions to bless others around you?
  • How can you encourage your peers, and support those older than you?

If you are not in this age group anymore…

  • How can you mentor and encourage the Mary’s & Joseph’s in your life?

2. Elizabeth
Luke 1:35-49

“Praise the Lord!  For he has heard my cry for mercy. The Lord is my strength and shield.  I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.”  Psalm 28:6-7

Things to consider:

If you are in this age group…

  • How can you use your gifts, talents, and passions to bless others around you?
  • How can you encourage your peers as well as those older & younger than you?

If you are younger than this age group…

  • How can you support and encourage the Elizabeth’s & Zechariah’s in your life?

If you are older than this age group…

  • How can you mentor and encourage the Elizabeth’s & Zechariah’s in your life?

3. Anna
Luke 2:36-38 

  • C.S. Lewis, “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”

Our purpose in God’s eyes remains the same.  

This side of heaven, there is work to be done.

Things to consider:

If you are in this age group…

  • How can you use your gifts, talents, and passions to bless the Mary’s/Joseph’s & Elizabeth’s/Zechariah’s around you?
  • How can you mentor, serve, and encourage your peers as well as those younger than you?

If you are younger than this age group…

  • How can you support and encourage the Anna’s & Simeon’s in your life?

1 Corinthians 12:27, “All of you together are Christ’s body, and each of you is a part of it.”
