Word Search for Mary’s Story
God had been orchestrating the events leading up to the birth of Jesus, the Messiah, since Genesis 3:15. Luke 1:26-56 tells us the Angel Gabriel appeared to a young woman named Mary. Gabriel announced that she would have a special baby—Jesus, the Messiah! This happened before Mary and Joseph were married and teaches that Jesus was special, not just because He was the Messiah, but because He was conceived miraculously by the power of the Holy Spirit. At about the same time, God had allowed Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist to become pregnant with John, also miraculously. John the Baptist was part of God’s great plan of redemption and restoration. Shortly later, when Mary visited Elizabeth, God confirmed for these two important women that He was in control and that Mary was, indeed, carrying the long-awaited Messiah promised in the Old Testament. This Word Search for Mary’s Story activity highlights Mary’s visit to Elizabeth and the important truth of Jesus’ virgin conception. Jesus was the promised Messiah of the Old Testament who was both physical (of Mary) and spiritual (of the Holy Spirit). How happy Mary and Elizabeth must have been that day!
