Liz Curtis Higgs is a super author and speaker, and best of all an encourager. Who doesn’t love a girl who write books called Bad Girls of the Bible and Really Bad Girls of the Bible.
Elizabeth, Mary, and Anna.
Elizabeth advanced in years, received the promise of a son, John the Baptist, who would pave the way for Jesus.
Mary, so young, unmarried, accepted her role as the mother of Jesus.
Anna, a prophetess, worshipped her God day and night in the temple.
Place yourself in any one of their spots. Would we stand with such faith and trust?
I am more the cowardly lion, spitting and sputtering in my fears. Oh, just let me see how it ends… then maybe. Only if everyone still loves me afterwards. Only if it doesn’t hurt too much. Only if it doesn’t take up too much time. Only if I am assured it is what you say it really is. Only if the cost is small.
So simple. So striking. God Saves.
And he did it through an unlikely lineage, through broken people, but people willing to lay it all down.
Remember that this day. He saves.
He saves us and he saves through us.
He gives us life and hope.
