ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE BIRTH OF JESUS
LUKE 1:26-38






Luke
Chapter 1




26
10 In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a town of Galilee called Nazareth,
27
to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin's name was Mary.
28
And coming to her, he said, "Hail, favored one! The Lord is with you."
29
But she was greatly troubled at what was said and pondered what sort of greeting this might be.
30
Then the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.
31
Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name him Jesus.
32
He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High, 11 and the Lord God will give him the throne of David his father,
33
and he will rule over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end."
34
But Mary said to the angel, "How can this be, since I have no relations with a man?" 12
35
And the angel said to her in reply, "The holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. Therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God.
36
And behold, Elizabeth, your relative, has also conceived 13 a son in her old age, and this is the sixth month for her who was called barren;
37
for nothing will be impossible for God."
38
Mary said, "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word." Then the angel departed from her.



Saying of the Faith
Luke 17:5-6




Luke
Chapter 17



5
And the apostles said to the Lord, "Increase our faith."
6
The Lord replied, "If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you would say to (this) mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it would obey you.


The Would - Be Followers of Jesus
Luke 9:57-62


Luke
Chapter 9





57
27 As they were proceeding on their journey someone said to him, "I will follow you wherever you go."
58
Jesus answered him, "Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head."
59
And to another he said, "Follow me." But he replied, "(Lord,) let me go first and bury my father."
60
But he answered him, "Let the dead bury their dead. 28 But you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God."
61
And another said, "I will follow you, Lord, but first let me say farewell to my family at home."
62
(To him) Jesus said, "No one who sets a hand to the plow and looks to what was left behind is fit for the kingdom of God."
