Women’s Small Group Notes for Monday Night

Monday night 7:00 P.M. we are looking into a study of women in the Bible.
Mary-A Favored Woman
Luke 1:30 “You have found favor with God.”
Luke 1:46 “ My soul magnifies the Lord.”
What Do We Know About Mary:
She was a virgin-unmarried and pure.  That was the “religious law” of the day
She was humble, from a small village, and uneducated
She was devoted believer
She was a faithful Jew-from the lineage of David
She was engaged to Joseph– engagements were legally binding and lasted at least a year
What Did God See As Useful:
1. She understood turning points and what they meant
Her acceptance didn’t need the “hows” and “whys”
**Sometimes turning points can shake us to the core.
2. Mary had the right heart to face the challenge
3. Mary had an attitude of acceptance– she accepted God’s plan without knowing the outcome
How Did God’s Plan Change Her Life:
She would be pregnant before she was married. Huge social burden
She would be branded as a fornicator
She would have trouble with Joseph
Her home would be blended and the community would see them as different
Her child would cause violent reactions in the hearts of people
Her soul would be pierced with great sorrow
Mary’s response to God was worship   Luke 1:46-55
Our “gift” of worship to Him Should Include:
1. Time in His Word, in service, in prayer
2. Money for His kingdom
3. Faith for the future
4. Witnessing to the lost
See you  there.
See you at Jennifer Taylor’s home tomorrow night at 7:00 PM.
