The Lord God Will Give Him The Throne Of David

He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High…

Luke 1:32

The angel Gabriel’s announcement to Mary fulfills God’s plan of salvation and the call for a response of an obedience of faith. Mary is engaged to Joseph, a man in the lineage of David. The angel’s greeting to Mary echoes God’s continual presence with David and his people: “The Lord is with you.” In revealing God’s plan for humanity, the angel Gabriel describes Jesus in no uncertain terms. He will be “great”, “Son of the Most High”, “holy”, and “Son of God.” 

The angel’s pronouncement of the miracle of Elizabeth’s pregnancy is a sign to Mary that God has and will continue to have mercy on his people. It also serves as evidence of God’s power and might to affirm that “nothing is impossible for God.” Mary’s yes to God points to her “obedience of faith” to which we are all called and serves as a role model for our own response to the birth of Jesus Christ; entrusting our entire being to God’s plan and providential care. 

Of his kingdom there will be no end!
