Ohh how I love the story of Mary and her simple yet profound statement in Luke 1:38, “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” She knew all to well what could happen. She could be stoned to death, lose her husband to be, Joseph, as well as a social outcast and she humbled herself to Gods will and placed her trust in the One who created her! Her song so beautiful, not condemning at all for her assigned lot but offering praises to God, affirming Him and his faithfulness to His people! What a powerful example she is to us today!
Today we read about the birth of John the Baptist and Zachariah’s prophecy as he was filled with the Holy Spirit after the birth of John!
