Luke 1:28

“May it be done to me according to your word.”

+++

When I read this one sentence from the mother of Jesus, this morning, it really struck me.

It usually does.

As the story goes, Mary had just found out that she was going to conceive by way of the Holy Spirit and give birth to the Son of God.

How’s that for an unexpected curveball?

Talk about the proverbial rug being pulled out from under you!

That’s when Mary made her statement of radical surrender.

The question is: Do we believe that God’s plan for us is better…far better…than anything we had planned?

By God’s plan, I don’t mean some set, step-by-step, completely laid-out plan.

I mean a general trajectory plan.

Each of us has a mission here.

Based on Jesus telling us that the greatest commandment is to love God and your neighbor as yourself, it follows that love is what we’re here to give and receive.

It’s how the kingdom of God breaks into the present moment.

It emerges from within each of us as we allow it.

It’s a bright light within each person.

It’s your true self, your untarnished, glorious soul.

But first we must shed all that covers it – the many masks and false trappings that our egos have constructed.

Who are you really?

A beloved child of God, that’s who!

From this awareness may we all say: “May it be done to me according to your word.”
