“Let it be to me according to your word.” Lk 1:38 NKJV

The story of the virgin birth illustrates how close God wants to get to us. In a sense He’s asking you the same question He asked Mary: “Are you willing to let Me in?” Just as Mary conceived the Christ Child, Jesus can be born in you and live His life through you. What an amazing thought. What a privilege! Paul prayed, “That Christ may dwell in your hearts” (Eph 3:17 NIV). John said, “Those who obey…live in him, and he in them” (1Jn 3:24 NIV). Jesus promised, “If anyone…opens the door, I will come in” (Rev 3:20 NIV). All God asks is an invitation and an open heart. God was with Adam in the garden. He was with Abraham and called him His friend. But as a redeemed child of God, Jesus is in you. And He will keep growing in you until He comes out in your words, your attitudes, your lifestyle, and the choices you make each day. Are you struggling with bitterness? Or worry? Or unforgiveness? Or bad habits? Since Jesus lives in you, you have access to His awesome power. That’s how come Paul talks about “striving according to His power, which mightily works within me” (Col 1:29 NAS). God isn’t looking for great talent, He’s looking for simple trust. Mary must have felt overwhelmed and inadequate when she heard what God had in mind for her. Nevertheless she said, “Let it be to me according to your word.” Do you want to have a great Christmas? Make that your prayer too.

After I initially left a comment I appear to have
clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from
now on each time a comment is added I get four emails with the exact same comment.
Perhaps there is an easy method you can remove me from that service?

Many thanks!

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this site. It's simple,
yet effective. A lot of times it's tough to get that "perfect balance"
between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say that you've done a very
good job with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for
me on Chrome. Outstanding Blog!

I believe what you said made a great deal of sense.
However, think on this, what if you added a little
information? I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your website, but what if you added a title to
possibly get folk's attention? I mean BORN, GROWING AND LIVING IN YOU
| The Encouraging Word is a little vanilla. You might
peek at Yahoo's home page and see how they create post headlines to get viewers to click.
You might add a related video or a picture or two
to get readers interested about everything've got to say.
Just my opinion, it would bring your website a little bit
more interesting.

I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.
