In our church, many have sung the popular hymn, ‘I surrender all’. If you don’t remember, watch the YouTube video by clicking this link – I surrender all.
When we read & hear the WORD of God, we are encouraged to retain it. As we meditate on it, we desire that our thoughts and actions are shaped by the WORD. Thus, we become transformed into the manifestation of Christ Jesus. I shall add verses supporting these thoughts.
What did Mary do? She received the seed from the Holy Spirit & birthed Jesus. She pondered on the prophecies she had received from Simon at the temple, what the angel had spoken about, the testimony of her Aunt Elizabeth, and what the shepherds & the Kings from the East had told her. She then trained Jesus on all these precious thoughts & prophecies. She took great care to train Jesus. All this was revealed in the deep knowledge of Jesus. As parents, Mary & Joseph made Jesus manifest into the Son of God he was made to be.
When we receive the WORD with surrender & reverence, it is able to transform us into manifesting Christ, the son of God. Hope this answers how Mary, who surrendered and pondered, is similar to us in the role of bringing Christ in us to be manifested.
