Everyone who came in touch with Jesus responded in worship. So did Mary when she responded with a song of praise with regards to Christ’s coming birth. In today’s sermon we learn from Mary how to worship and be a worshiper that God seeks.
And Mary said: “
My soul glorifies the Lord
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has been mindful
of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
for the Mighty One has done great things for me—
holy is his name.
His mercy extends to those who fear him,
from generation to generation.
He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble.
He has filled the hungry with good things but has sent the rich away empty.
He has helped his servant Israel,
remembering to be merciful to Abraham and his descendants forever,
just as he promised our ancestors.”Luke 1:46-55 (NIV)
