SUMMARY: In the Gospel of Luke, the angel Gabriel appears to Mary to tell her she will conceive a son, Jesus, through the Holy Spirit. Mary, a virgin, would give birth to this unique being that was a perfect mixture of humanity and divinity. This was necessary because Jesus was not just any old thing; He was the way, the truth, and the life, and no one comes to the Father except through Him. Jesus came to solve a problem that God had with humanity, namely that man had fallen and was deserving of death and damnation. Mary's virginity was important because it was necessary for the being that was to be born to be consecrated to the Lord and to open the womb. Through the incarnation, God was creating a being that was going to be able to give humanity what it needed to solve its dilemma, and that was to pay the price of all sins of all men. In his human nature, Christ was living the life we were supposed to live, both good and bad, and in his divine quality, of God, He could pay the debts of all of us. Today, we can look at Jesus and say, Lord, I believe that you completed that in your incarnation, you paid the price for my sin, and now I can have the freedom to come before Him.

The story of Mary being visited by an angel and told she will give birth to Jesus is a reminder of the importance of obedience to God. Mary was chosen not because of her status or education, but because of her character and inner beauty. While Mary is respected and venerated by evangelical Christians, she is not a mediator between God and men. The angel's greeting to Mary shows that she was highly favored and blessed by God, despite her humble background. The story reminds us to trust in God's plan and to have a heart of obedience to Him.

This sermon is about the Christmas story and the birth of Jesus. The speaker discusses the angel's announcement to Mary that she will bear a son who will be the savior of humanity. He also talks about Jesus' lineage and how he is descended from King David. The main message is that Christmas is about God's plan to save humanity and that we should focus on the salvation that Jesus brings. The speaker invites those who have not yet accepted Jesus as their personal savior to do so. The sermon concludes with a hymn and a prayer.

Gospel according to Saint Luke, there in Chapter 1 we have a passage that is well known and in this Christmas season it is good to take moments to remember the events, remember the details, remember the aspects of the Christmas story.

In verse 26, Luke, Chapter 1, the word of the Lord says: “ the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a city in Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph, of the house of David, and the virgin's name was Mary, and the angel entering where she was said: "Hail, highly favored, the Lord is with you, blessed are you among women." ”. But when she saw him, she was disturbed by his words and thought what salutation this would be. Then the angel said to her: Mary, do not be afraid, for you have found grace before God and now you will conceive in your womb and give birth to a son, you will call his name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give him the throne of David his father. And he will reign over the house of Jacob forever and his kingdom will have no end. Then Mary said to the angel: How will this be?, because I do not know a man, answering the angel, said to him: "The holy spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High will cover you with his shadow, for which reason also the holy being that will be born will be called the son of God and behold your relative, Elizabeth, she has also conceived a son in her old age, and this is the sixth month for her, the one they called barren, because nothing is impossible for God. Then Mary said: "Behold, the servant of the Lord, let it be done with me according to your word", and the angel left her presence. Lord bless your holy word.
