Two Radical Parents

I.             Mary was radically obedient.

A.   Mary discerned God’s call on her life.                                      Luke 1:26, 29, 34

B.   Mary was willing to accept whatever God had in store for her.           Luke 1:38

 

II.          Joseph was radically faithful.

A.   Joseph was honorable to Mary.                                                          Matt. 1:19

B.    Joseph was honorable to God in his obedience.                            Matt. 1:24-25

 

III.       We are called to be radically faithful and obedient.

A.    The call to live as a follower of Jesus Christ was never promised to be easy. 

                                                                                                    Matt. 16:24-26,

B.   The exchange is eternal and worth every sacrifice.                   Matt. 6:19-24, 33

 

What call has God placed on my life?

When I am willing to be radically obedient and faithful, God receives the glory.
