What God DOESN'T Care About | Learning to Follow Jesus | Luke 1:26-45

This is a podcast episode titled, What God DOESN'T Care About | Learning to Follow Jesus | Luke 1:26-45. The summary for this episode is: "I think what Luke is trying to help us see is that God doesn't care about your background; He doesn't care about your religiousness." In the last episode, https://www.thecrossingchurch.com/staff/keith-simon/ (Keith) talked about Zachariah's response when the angel Gabriel visited him. This time, Keith discusses Mary's response. God made great promises to both of Zachariah and Mary. He didn't care about their contrasting reputations or social standing. Explore what God does care about as Keith reads through https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=luke+1%3A26-45&amp;version=NIV (Luke 1:26-45) to continue our series on Learning to Follow Jesus. In this episode, we continue our discussion on responding to God.
