10 Days of Christmas Devotional - You're Never Too Young to Be Used by God

Luke 1:26-27 says, In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. And the virgin's name was Mary.

Mary was pretty young. Scholars' opinions range anywhere from 13 or 14 years old to 18 or 19.  The point is this: God used Mary in a miraculous way.  That's God's M.O.  He used Mary when she was just a teenager.  We could also mention her cousin Elizabeth who gave birth at an older age.  It doesn't matter your age, position in life or your circumstances (do a study on the town of Nazareth), God can and will use you today as vital parts of His plan to redeem humankind.
