"...do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great,and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end." (Luke 1:30-33, NKJV)
"I can begin each day with the deeply encouraging realization that I am accepted by God, not on the basis of my personal righteousness, but on the basis of the infinitely perfect righteousness of Jesus Christ."
