Luke's story of Christmas shows us how God's grace is so important to the Christmas story. The angel appeared to Mary and proclaimed straight up that she was to be a recipient of God's grace. Then as the proclamation continued, we see how this grace was an operation of the Triune God and that through this grace a powerless young girl would receive the power of the Most High. Mary's ability to receive and respond to this message from the angel is also the working of God's grace. In all of this Mary models for us how all true believers are receivers of God's amazing grace.
