And again, Luke points his readers to another God-sent, Spirit-filled announcement as the Holy Spirit, blows into the life of Elizabeth, pouring out proclamation and exultation of the wondrous coming event of the Lord.
Mary responds to this divine proclamation with spontaneous, joy-filled worship, rejoicing and praising her God who is faithful, steadfast and good, recounting his mighty acts of salvation and His continued faithfulness to fulfill His promises.
Divine occurrences and divine speech fill this part of the story of Jesus’ coming. Again, Luke wants his readers to know with certainty that this is God moving in history, keeping His promise, Scripture’s being fulfilled, the Messiah’s coming!
In awe and wonder, to simply respond in spontaneous joy-filled worship for God’s loving, mighty, saving act in history that offers us a rescued, set-right life with Him, through King Jesus!!!
Merry Christmas Season! ☺
