Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: Deut. 13:1-15:23 Luke 8:40-9:6 Proverbs 12:5-7

“The Annunciation of our Lord”

“And Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.”
[Luke 1:38]

Bernard says concerning the faith of the Virgin Mary, when it had been announced to her by the angel, that she would be the mother of our Lord Christ that the strength of faith of the Virgin who could believe the words of the angel was no less a miracle than the incarnation of the Word itself. Therefore the greatest things in the histories of the saints are the words which God speaks to them. Although their virtues and deeds should be praised … yet they, like their feet, should be put in the lowest place. But the head in the life of the saints is the speaking of God itself.
