Love with Mary

Sun, Dec 20, 2020
And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child. And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart. -- Luke 2:17–19 (ESV) One of the dominating images of the Christmas story is a young woman deep into her pregnancy enduring the long uncomfortable journey to Bethlehem. Through the scriptures we see a woman not only with a maternal love for her child, but also a love for him as her savior. It is both amazing and beautiful. This week we take some time to examine that kind of love, but I want to look beyond Mary's love (as great as it is) to a love that is even wider and deeper. As you consider what love that might be, I'd encourage you to read 1 John 4 to prepare your heart to worship together.
