Luke 1 holds one very important lesson. Why do you think God chose Mary? Because she was a virgin? Yes, but No! It was because as in verses 26 – 27, ‘And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee,…, to a virgin ESPOUSED TO A MAN whose name was JOSEPH, of the house of DAVID; and the virgin’s name was Mary.’ Gbam! That’s it. Ask yourself, Who was the promise made to? David. Rev 22:16, ‘I am the Root and the Offspring of David.’ See that? Jesus declaring. So because of Joseph – who is of the lineage of David – God chose Mary! The power of association. You can be a candidate of favor because of whom you’re with.
