Luke 1:28 - "And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favored, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women."
Ephesians 1:6 - "To the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved."
THE WORD "FREELY GIVEN" OR "ACCEPTED" IN EPHESIANS 1:6 (THE GREEK WORD - CHARITOO) IS THE SAME WORD USED FOR "HIGHLY FAVORED" IN LUKE 1:28.
MARY WAS THE ONE PERSON ON EARTH WHO WAS CHOSEN TO "BRING FORTH THE SON OF GOD; AND SHE WAS CALLED HIGHLY FAVORED AND BELOVED OF THE LORD. EPHESIANS 1:6 IS TALKING ABOUT EVERY BORN AGAIN BELIEVER BEING ACCEPTED IN THE BELOVED.
JUST AS MARY WAS USED TO BRING FORTH THE SON OF GOD, SO ALSO, WE WILL BE USED TO BRING FORTH THE SON OF GOD IN ALL HIS GLORY.
QUESTIONS TO ASK MYSELF:
1. How is God using me to bring forth the Son of God in all his glory to the lost and suffering mankind?
2. Do I have a a revelation of being "accepted" and "highly favored" in the beloved?
John 20:21 - "As the Father sent me, so I send you."
MY LIFE HAS NO OTHER PURPOSE THAN TO FOLLOW HIM AND MAKE HIM KNOWN.
I HAVE BEEN ASSIGNED BY GOD TO REPRESENT JESUS IN THE WORLD.
I REPRESENT CHRIST IN ANY GIVEN SITUATION.
NOTHING EVER GETS BIGGER IN MY CONSCIOUSNESS THAN MY AWARENESS OF GOD'S PRESENCE UPON ME.
