Spiritual Food: "Rejoice , Highly Favored One"

"Rejoice, Highly Favored One"

     As we hail women this month, these verses will help us know our purpose and who we are to God.

Made to help man: 

Genesis 2:18    "And the Lord said, 'It is not good 
that man should be alone; I will make him a
helper comparable to him' ".

The glory of man, :

1 Corinthians 11: 7, 10-12   "For a man indeed 
ought not to cover his head, since he is the 
image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man.....For this reason the woman ought 
to have a symbol of authority on her head
because of the angels. Nevertheless, neither is man independent of woman, nor woman 
independent of man, in the Lord. For a woman
came from man, even so man also comes through woman; but all things are from God.   

Spiritual Position: 

Galatians 3:28-29   "There is neither Jew nor Greek, 
there is neither slave nor free, 
there is  neither male nor female;  
for you are all one in Christ Jesus
And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, 
and heirs according to the promise."

Mary's Submission:

     The Announcement:   Luke 1: 28, 31  "And having come in, the angel said to her, 'Rejoice, highly favored one, the Lord is with you; blessed are you among women!'.....'And behold you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name, Jesus' ".

     Mary' Song (Prayer of Praise):  Luke 1:46-48  "And Mary said, 
'My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit 
has rejoiced in God my Savior. For He has regarded the lowly state of His maidservant; for behold, 
henceforth all generations will call me blessed' ".

     Blessed are you, women of Christ! Blessed are you, women who will know Christ!
