Read Luke 1:26-38

1. In verses 26-30 of our passage, we see God shows favor to Mary. The word "favor" means grace. How has God personally shown you grace over the past year?

2. Mary's response to the angel Gabriel's proclamation was confusion and fear. Have you ever been fearful of something that turned out to be a blessing?

3. Gabriel responded to Mary's fear by reassuring her that the Lord was on her side. In what areas of your life do you need to be reminded that the Lord is on your side, and you don't need to fear? (Psalm 118:6)

4. Pastor Zac said at times we need to be reminded of God's grace and love when we doubt and go through tough times. Who in your life is in need of encouragement right now, and how can you do that for them?  

5. Can you remember the six attributes of Jesus in this passage?

6. Mary responds to Gabriel with an honest question; "How is this possible since I am a virgin?" Why are we fearful of asking questions when it comes to God and His word? How do we balance doubt and truth?

7. This passage ends with the faithfulness of Mary in her response “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.”  She knew this was going to be challenging but submitted to God. How can we submit to God daily?
