Yesterday we left off in Luke Chapter 1 with Zechariah and Elizabeth becoming pregnant in their old age. Zechariah was made unable to speak until the birth of his son, John, because he doubted what the angel said was true. Elizabeth remained in seclusion for five months and reflected on what the Lord had done for her by showing her his favor and took away her disgrace among the people as it was considered shameful to be barren and unable to conceive a child.
Today, the birth of Christ is foretold to Mary! What is your reaction to her simple yet so profound statement? See my previous blog “Mary: I am the Lord’s Servant” for my take. Grab a cuppa coffee and let’s begin!
