Luke 1:39 – Doing Strange Things


“In those days Mary set out and went with haste to a Judean town in the hill country.”

Mary just received some very big news:  She’s going to be the Mother of God. And what is her first response?  Why, a road trip, of course!

People touched by God do strange things.  Unexpected things.  Hard to understand things.  They see people and tell tales and change lives.  They dance in the streets, feed the hungry and heal the lame.  People who are touched by God can’t keep it to themselves.  They have to tell someone, share with anyone.

Yes, people touched by God do strange things, like make a impromptu and hasty road trip.

When is the last time you did something a little strange?
