Day 14: Special Delivery


Mary's FIRST MOTHER'S DAY,

the day she had to let JESUS go.

Did she KNOW that

THIS BABY,

THE BABY

implanted in her womb,

that the angel told her about,

would be

THE ONE

who she would have to

LET GO

the day

JESUS

was delivered

INTO the WORLD

that would

crucify

HIM

so that

HE would DELIVER

her

and everyone else.

Mary's

FIRST MOTHER'S DAY

when

GOD DELIVERED

HIS SON

in a stable with animals and hay.

Think about it.

The moment the umbilical cord was cut

was the moment

JESUS was

released into the world

to do HIS ministry

that HE was called to do.

From the CRADLE TO THE CROSS.

Oh the miracle of

BIRTH,

especially for Mary,

for

her pregnancy

was a MIRACLE

just as all pregnancies are,

but her pregnancy

was

THE PROMISED SEED of GOD

that was to

SAVE THE WORLD.

Can you imagine?

The DAY JESUS was revealed to Mary~

"Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with GOD. You will conceive and give birth to a SON, and you are to call HIM JESUS.

HE will be great and will be called the SON OF THE MOST HIGH. The LORD GOD will give him the throne of his father David, and HE will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; HIS kingdom will never end" (Luke 1:30-33).

Did the angel forget to read to her the fine print~

"HE grew up before him like a tender shoot, like a root out of dry ground. HE had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. HE was despised and rejected by mankind, a MAN of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces HE was despised, and we held him in low esteem.

Surely HE took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered HIM punished by GOD, stricken by HIM, and afflicted. But HE was pierced for our transgressions, HE was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on HIM, and by HIS wounds we are healed" (Isaiah 53:2-5).

And there she was

on

JESUS' BIRTH DAY

the day

Mary

celebrated her

FIRST MOTHER'S DAY.

The day

Mary

looked into the eyes of her first born

so

GOD

would knit

HIM into our hearts~

"For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders" (Isaiah 9:6). A CHILD

born to us

Who once was a

A BABY

Who grew to be a

LITTLE BOY.

Who grew up to became a MAN.

Who was born to Die.

Who is this MAN?

The ONE who endured the cross,

for the joy set before HIM.

To be crucified on the cross,

for me and for you,

shedding HIS blood~

To fulfill all the prophecies and promises in God’s great book

"Preach good news to the poor.

Bind up the brokenhearted.

Proclaim freedom for the prisoners.

Recovery of sight for the blind.

Release the oppressed .

Proclaim the year of the LORD's favor..."

For

"HE will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty GOD, Everlasting FATHER,

Prince of Peace"

(Luke 4:18-19; Isaiah 61:1-2)

Because

HIS FATHER,

our FATHER

who art in heaven,

Who is

THE FATHER to the fatherless.

THE FATHER to the motherless.

THE FATHER to the childless.

OUR FATHER to all.

And to think it began the day

Mary

celebrated her first

MOTHER'S DAY,

the day

that she isn't the only one

who

let JESUS go,

but the

DAY HIS FATHER

let HIM go

for you and for me~

"How many FATHER's gave up their SONs for me? Only ONE did that for me

All for me, all for you" ("How Many Kings", listen below)*

FIRST THINGS FIRST~

DON'T LET JESUS GO!

Happy Mother's Day!

*HOW MANY KINGS

(listen to the song below)
