December 13, 2020

The angels were sent from God to guide His people throughout the Christmas story.

The Angels Announced Four Times, “Do Not Fear.”

Mary does not fear. Why!

  • She believed God – v. 45
  • She magnified the Lord – v. 46
  • Her rejoicing was in God not her circumstances – v. 47
  • God was her Saviour – v. 47
  • She humbled herself before God – v. 48
  • She knew who she served

 

 

He Is – v. 49

  • He’s the One in charge of the angels
  • He’s the One who can place His child in a virgin’s womb
  • Just in this chapter He has
  • Mary says, “He has done great things to me”

 

He Is – v. 50

  • Our God is holy and wants us to be holy –   1 Peter 1:15-16
  • He is merciful –   Exodus 20:4-6  |  Matthew 5:7
  • God will have mercy on those that call on Him

 

He Is – vv. 51-52

  • Herod would send soldiers to kill Jesus
  • God is able to scatter the proud
  • The story of Sennacherib invading Israel –   2 Kings 19:1-35
  • David the shepherd boy – depending on God – defeated them

 

He Fills the Hungry with Things

  • Mary knew God would take care of her needs –   Philippians 4:19  |  Luke 6:38   |  Psalm 37:25  |  Matthew 5:6 
  • Paul suffered hunger and thirst –  1 Corinthians 4:11  |   2 Corinthians 11:27
  • He fed the Israelites in the wilderness for 40 years

 

He His Servants

  • The word means to support by coming along side and helping up – 2 Corinthians 12:7-10
  • God will allow His servants to be weak so thy are dependent on Him
  • Stay dependent on Him daily

 

He Is the God Who

  • Though His Word –  2 Peter 1:19
  • Through the words of His Son –  Hebrews 1:1-2
  • Through His Spirit –  1 John 4:13
  • His Spirit will never lead us contrary to His Word –  2 Timothy 3:16

 

CONCLUSION

Though Mary lived in trouble times she was told by the angel not to fear. Why? Because she knew her God was with her.

  • He is mighty
  • He is merciful
  • He is strong
  • He feeds the hungry
  • He helps His servants

We can trust Him; we need not fear.
