The eyes of her heart were opened to see the Lord the moment he called her by name: “Mary.”
- Calling = Jesus called Mary out of un-knowing into knowing, out of darkness into light.
- Conversion = She turned away from death to life when she turned to Jesus.
- Confession = She confessed Jesus as Teacher — over against the angels.
- Commission = Jesus sent her on a mission to tell others the truth about his resurrection and ascension.
The same holds true for you and for me.
