Luke 1:26–38 – "Mary Steps toward the Impossible" – Kerry Kaino

Questions for Reflection:

1. The angel Gabriel interrupted Mary in the normal course of her life. In what ways have you experienced God interrupting you in the course of your days? Calling you to show to others the love of God? Desiring you to receive a word of encouragement? Inviting you to take a step of faith?

2. What challenges of faith might Mary have experienced because of God’s call to step out in faith?

3. Mary asked, “How will this be? How can this be?” (verse 34) What is your answer to those questions?

4. In what ways can we live by faith when life seems out of reach? In what ways can it give us peace knowing that all our hopes and all our dreams are in God’s hands? In what ways does that give us confidence to step onward? Mary said, “I am the Lord’s servant. May your word to me be fulfilled.” (verse 38)
