1 Why am I so favored? Luke


3 I’m so confused!

4 Favor is God’s “I’m for you” attitude.
“Favor” is N. “an attitude of approval or liking” V. “to feel or show approval or preference for”.

5 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Romans 8:32

6 My son, do not forget my teaching,     but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years     and bring you peace and prosperity.  Let love and faithfulness  never leave you bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. Proverbs 3.1-4

7 Mary’s Character “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May it be to me as you have said.” Luke 1.38 And Mary said: “My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior. Luke  But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 2.19

8 Mary’s Character But his mother treasured all these things in her heart. Luke 2.51 His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” John 2.5 They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus. Acts 1.14

9 Godly Favor Transforms Relationships


11 Godly Favor Benefits Others

12 Elizabeth had prayed for decades despite:
Her age Her barrenness Her husband ‘s unbelief Her personal disgrace 

13 Favor is not about God spending on us. It’s about God spending us.


15 “Be careful when a naked person offers you a shirt.” ~African Proverb

16 Growing in Favor Luke 2:51-52
“Then He went down to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them. But His mother treasured all these things in her heart. And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.”  Luke 2:51-52

17 Godly Favor Grows

18 He has . . . . been mindful of the humble state of his servant
done great things for me performed might deeds with His arm scattered those who are proud

19 He has . . . . brought down rulers from their thrones
lifted up the humble filled the hungry with good things helped His servant Israel Quotes from Psalm 34, 138, 103 & 98

20 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. From the fullness of His grace we have received on blessing after another. John 1.14 & 16
