Joe, her fiancé thinking the worst, planned to divorce Mary. But an angel, Gabriel comes to see him to tell him not to do that because this baby is very important.
It starts as a story of family crisis. But it’s the way God works. God works in crisis and uses ordinary situations that are transformed. Keep praying. You might have the angel Gabriel turn up!
For those of us who are ordinary and really of no consequence to the government, to royalty and the upper class, to the religious authorities, this Christmas story gives hope, lifting up those of us who don’t feel we have a voice, ordinary people, bringing hope at a time of crisis.
Let’s hope and pray for people in crisis this Christmas and let us be the ones to offer help and hope. To be Gods messengers in a time of crisis and to see situations transformed.
