The experience of longing might perhaps be the thing that defines human experience more than anything else. In fact, every person has, not just longings, but unfulfilled longings. Therefore, one of our biggest questions is: What do we do with these longings? Is it even possible for them to be fulfilled? Mary’s encounter with the angel in Luke 1 helps us. As she wrestles with the message of the angel, it leads her to see that the gospel is not just information, but a radical call on each person’s life. What does that call mean for our deepest longings? This passage helps us to see the answer.
