No not the Ralphie Christmas Story; the real one.
Blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord
- Luke 1.45
Pregnant Elizabeth is telling pregnant Mary that it’s good that Mary is not like Elizabeth’s husband. He didn’t believe it when God told him he would be a dad. He knew he was too old.
Mary DID believe it when God told her she would have a baby. Without sex. The baby would come from God.
I have some things I think God has told me. Shame on me when I don’t believe it.
If something is your own idea, that’s fine. But if you’re convinced the idea is from God then shame on you too when you don’t believe it.
