This lyrics is educative. It is morally eloquent to teach you what you never can tell would be. Just take a look at this Christmas song:

…Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day walk on water?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
These lines where originally sang by Pentatonix – an American a cappella group from Arlington, Texas, consisting of vocalists Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, Kirstin MaldonadoKevin Olusola and Matt Sallee.

Reading through these lines, you would observe that Mary truly didn’t know that she would bring forth a fruit – Jesus Christ, who is not only just a fruit, but a fruit of blessing to the world – What an honour!

She didn’t know that her son would walk on water. Now, what does that means – walking on water? It’s not just walking on water as it seems in the ears. It is more than what mere thoughts can tell. It is more than mortals can imagine, isn’t it? Okay. Jesus walked on water, that’s amazing. But the centre message here lies on His earthly mother – MARY. She wouldn’t have imagined that she could bring forth a fruit like Jesus Christ, let alone bring Jesus Himself. This is GREATNESS, HONOUR, PRIVILEGE, BLESSING AND ABOVE ALL, GLORIOUS IN THE SIGHT OF SPIRITS AND MAN.

Mary didn’t yet know that her son would one day save the entire world – died on the cross, and brought salvation. Isn’t that yet overwhelming? It is right?
But that doesn’t end there. It is not as though Mary was just picked from anywhere and made the mother of Jesus Christ. She would have done something that warranted her this honour and privilege. Mary didn’t just close and open her eyes and see herself as the mother of the Jesus.
The question is, what did she do?

Look at what happened in the Holy Bible, in the book of LUKE 1:26 and 27. It is clearly reported that when Angel Gabriel met Mary in Nazareth, he met not just Mary. He met two people – MARY AND VIRGINITY. First, Mary was just like any other woman out there, or could it be said that any woman is just like Mary before she was met by the Lord. But, on the other hand, any other woman cannot be like the VIRGINITY of Mary or rather in her – that is the key. She was not just like any other woman when viewed in Virtue-perspective. 'Mary is an exception'. Her virtue spoke for her in the later times of her life – bringing forth a fruit she didn’t know that would become the Saviour of mankind, wow!

Her Virginity here is not just the virginity of the flesh, but that of the SOUL AND PERSONALITY as well. She was a lady with integrity, virtue, highly spirited in humility and in the love of God. In the same Luke 1:30, she is said to have found favour in the sight of God. And before one could find favour in the sight of God, it is not a joke. One must have sacrificed something that is costly to be favoured by God. Yet, as many as desire His favour can still find it, especially this year, 2018.
What are your efforts now?
Would you like to sing your own song in 2018, placing your name in the place of Mary’s, and ask, ‘Did I know…?’

It is a thing of joy to say, ‘I never knew that I will be blessed and honoured like this’, than to say, ‘Had I known. I should have done this like this or like that to be honoured’.
If Mary didn’t keep her virginity of the flesh, soul and personality, she wouldn’t have found favour in the sight of GOD. So, for you, are you really keeping you own virginity of flesh, soul and personality, in order to be favoured in 2018 – what are your plans like? What are you thinking for year? What have you crafted out as to your spiritual and moral goals in 2018? Or are you just smiling to the aroma of Christmas, and new year?

Many would remain in 2017 while 2018 continues, even up to the end of it. Well, that's not your portion
But inasmuch as you've rounded up 2017, think, plan and pray to be favoured in 2018 like Mary.

All the best – Still on the Christmas, and new year celebration, God bless you, and remain favoured!
