Numbers 1:1-2:9; Luke 1:26-38; Psalm 33:12-22
“The Israelites did all this just as the Lord commanded Moses” (Numbers 1:54). “‘I am the Lord’s servant’, Mary answered, ‘May it be to me as You have said’” (Luke 1:38). Obedience to the Lord’s Word – this is emphasized throughout Scripture: “the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear Him, on those whose hope in His unfailing love” (Psalm 33:18). Obedience to God is set within the context of both fearing the Lord and knowing the reality of His love.
