Luke 1:26-56

Luke 1:26-45

A challenge for us to hear (and learn from) Mary's song

What we know about Mary and her situation

The destiny of her child, Jesus

Her's is a song of generosity and surrender.

  • She understood who Jesus is.
  • She understood who she is becoming.

Verses 46-56

Mary's Song

  • God sees.
  • He hears the humble.
  • He lifts and feeds the hungry.
  • The rich are empty.
  • The meek will inherit the earth.
  • Things will change!

Mary's obedience to God:

  • "I am the Lord's servant.  May it be to me as you have said."

Jesus' obedience to His Father:

  • "Not my will, but yours be done."

What does our obedience look and sound like?
