Mary’s Song of Joy

Luke 1:26-55

Mary’s Song of Joy is in response to the Lord’s announcement through the angel and the confirmation of this through Elizabeth, that she would bear the Christ Child. Her song focuses on 1) It’s Purpose – to magnify and rejoice in God’s work of salvation, 2) To magnify and rejoice in God for the fact that he used and saved her, a lowly girl who herself needed a Savior and, 3) to  magnify and rejoice in God for the fact that that God’s great work is for all generations and in fulfillment of his promises. Along the way we are reminded that God uses the weak and the lowly (in spirit, if not in circumstances) to do his work.
