Nine months until Christmas, and with Holy Week in sight we pause to trace the Baby from manger to cross. [The Annunciation of Our Lord]

Scripture: Luke 1:26-28

ESV Text: Luke 1:26-28


KJV Text:

(Alt. audio): Chapter: 1 26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, 27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. 28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 84, st. 5:
Christians, Awake

— Organ Audio

5. Oh, may we keep and ponder in our mind
God’s wondrous love in saving lost mankind!
Trace we the Babe, who hath retrieved our loss,
From His poor manger to His bitter cross,
Tread in His steps, assisted by His grace,
Till man’s first heavenly state again takes place.
