I’ve been reading through Luke 1 this week. This is the first time that I took the time to REALLY read it, not just rush through its 80 verses in order to “get to the good stuff” of Luke’s account of the life of Jesus (you know, things like the Christmas story, feeding 5,000 people, stumping the Pharisees, loving on the outcasts of His day, etc).
My next couple posts will be lessons God has taught me through this chapter. Above all else, He has used it to remind me that He really does do extraordinary work in the lives of ordinary people: a couple trying to get pregnant, a young peasant girl, my friends, people I go to church with, and even myself.
I won't post the entire text here. You might want to read through it yourself to get some perspective on what I'll be talking about.
I hope you hear about God's amazing character through my imperfect words.
