Luke 1:26-38

Used by God:  Mary

INTRODUCTION:  Mary is a part of God’s plan to bring a Savior to the world.  Here is where she hears that announcement.  We have already talked about the news that the angel brought and how marvelous that news was.  But here, today we want to look at how Mary allowed God to use her with an amazing attitude and heart.  If you want God to use you affectively, you need to allow Him to do the same things that Mary allowed Him to do.

  1. ALLOW GOD TO FILL IN YOUR KNOWLEDGE (VS. 28-33)
  2. ALLOW GOD TO OVERCOME YOUR DOUBTS (VS. 34-37)
  3. ALLOW GOD TO USE YOU AS HE WISHES (V. 38)

CONCLUSION:  Will you allow God to use you?  Will you let Him teach you new things to fill in your limited knowledge?  Will you allow God to overcome whatever doubts you have in His work?  Will you allow God to use you however he wants to use you?  God can do great things through you just like He did Mary.  Allow God to do it!
