Mary Was Blessed With Christ

Posted by Pastor Jerry Miller on Friday, December 31, 2010,

As I was preparing to write this article, I looked over at my wife who was holding our youngest son who is now seven months old. As I watched them I began to think of Mary holding Baby Jesus so long ago. What a joy she must have had as she realized she was not holding just any baby, but the promised Messiah Himself.
