December 12. Read Luke 1:34-38.
Mary is an unmarried virgin (Luke 1:26–28) hearing amazing news from the angel Gabriel. His message is that Mary will conceive a Son, to be named Jesus (Luke 1:31). He will be the Messiah: God incarnate and the Savior of the world (Luke 1:32–33; 22:70; 2 Corinthians 1:19; John 3:16). That Mary would bear the very Son of God is incredible!
