Luke 1:26-56

“He has shown strength with his arm; he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts; he has brought down the mighty from their thrones and exalted those of humble estate; he has filled the hungry with good things …” (v51-53).  Mary’s prophetic song declared the truth revealed in the coming of Jesus.  God chose two ordinary women – Elizabeth, who had lived her whole life without children, and Mary the young virgin – to show “strength with His arm.”  

“And why is it granted to me …?” (v43). God didn’t choose rich, powerful, or influential people to receive the Messiah into the world; He chose the humble, who welcomed him eagerly.  #NCManna
