How Should We View the Virgin Mary?

With Luke 1:26-38 open and the whole testimony of Scripture in mind, Kenny Stokes asked three questions about Mary in a recent sermon:

  1. Should we view Mary as blessed?
  2. Should we worship Mary?
  3. How should we view Mary in relation to our salvation?

He concluded with three simple suggestions on how we should view her:

  1. She is wonderfully and uniquely blessed
  2. She should be honored
  3. She should be imitated

He starts this part of the sermon at the seven minute mark.
