A Friend Unto Us Is Born

This morning as we draw near to Christmas day we had the privilege of hearing a short word from Christie Drozdowski. Christie spoke on cultivating great friendship and being a good friend using Jesus as the example.

  • He noticed, celebrated and honored people well.
  • He was patient.
  • He was authentic, truly himself everywhere he went.

She read from Luke 1 v 39-45 from The Passion Translation.

“39 Afterward, Mary arose and hurried off to the hill country of Judea, to the village where Zechariah and Elizabeth lived. 40 Arriving at their home, Mary entered the house and greeted Elizabeth. 41 At the moment she heard Mary’s voice, the baby within Elizabeth’s womb jumped and kicked. And suddenly, Elizabeth was filled to overflowing with the Holy Spirit! 42 With a loud voice she prophesied with power: 

“Mary! You are a woman given the highest favor and privilege above all others. For your child is destined to bring God great delight. 43 How did I deserve such a remarkable honor to have the mother of my Lord come and visit me? 44 The moment you came in the door and greeted me, my baby danced inside me with ecstatic joy! 45 Great favor is upon you, for you have believed every word spoken to you from the Lord.”
