“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her. (Luke 1:38)
If an angel appeared to you, how would you react?
Good question and one we couldn’t honestly answer unless it actually happened. Nevertheless, we can speculate.
Fear is the first thing that comes to my mind. No matter what we think our reactions would be, fear would be among them. Every incidence recorded in the Bible where it mentions angels appeared to humans, it also states those who saw the celestial beings were afraid. Mary must have been no different for the angel says “Do not be afraid.” So it stands to reason that if we saw an angel, we’d tremble with fear.
In preparation for tomorrow’s meditation, read Matthew 1:18-25.
See you in a twinkling,
