GOD’S COVENANT IS FOREVER
 
Nothing will be impossible for God... God becomes man and the door opens for all people to enter into the life of God, which is eternal life.
 
Knowing the steadfast love of God is the greatest gift! God’s love endures forever because He is a covenant-making Father who keeps His promises. God showed special favor to David when He anointed him to be king of Israel. After David had established peace in the land and wanted to build a house for God, God reassured him that he would build David a house, not made of stone but of flesh, that would last forever.
 
Today in the Gospel of Luke we reflect that Mary’s prompt response of “yes” to the divine message is a model of faith for all of us. Mary believed God promises even when they seemed impossible. She was full of grace because she trusted that what God said was true and would be fulfilled. She was willing to do His will, even if it seemed impossible. Mary is the “mother of God” because the Second Person who is Divine becomes incarnate when He takes on flesh in her womb.
Nothing will be impossible for God. On this fourth Sunday of Advent, before we celebrate Christmas, scripture speaks of the ways God moves beyond limitations. King David, with the prophet Nathan’s approval, wants to build God a Temple, yet God will not be confined or put into a box. The age-old mysteries are revealed. A virgin conceives.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: In what ways do you try to put God in a “box”? When do you know that God dwells in you? Most importantly how can you emulate Mary’s response to God?
