I am going to be speaking on January 6 at Arrowsmith Christian Church about obedience. As I have been preparing and asking God to show me exactly what He wants me to say, I was reminded of Mary. When Gabriel came to tell Mary that she was going to carry the Son of God in her womb, her final response was "Behold, the bondslave of the Lord; may it be done to me according to your word" (Luke 1:38) How long has God been waiting for you and me to say the same words to Him? Although there have been times that I said "yes" to God, my responses usually start out with, "I can't do that" or "what will people think". Most times, He waits in vain to hear these sweet words come from His children's mouths.
