December 16

“For the Mighty One has done great things for me — Holy is His name.” Luke 1:49 (NIV)

Have you ever thought of whom it was that sang the first song in connection with the birth of Jesus? I am going to suggest that we look at the song which Mary sang when she first came to visit her cousin Elizabeth. This was, of course several months before Jesus was born. Her opening words were: “My soul praises the Lord” and then she tells why as we read our verse for today. It was a great thing that God had done in causing her to conceive a child who would be the Son of God. This was her song of praise. We believe that she trusted in Jesus as her Savior. After His crucifixion and ascension she joined other believers in prayer in Jerusalem. God had done great things for her! And he has done great things for us, too.
