Luke 1:46-55 (NAS) 46And Mary said: “My soul exalts the Lord, 47and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior. 48For He has had regard for the humble state of His bondslave; for behold, from this time on all generations will count me blessed. 49For the Mighty One has done great things for me; and holy is His name. 50AND HIS MERCY IS UPON GENERATION AFTER GENERATION TOWARD THOSE WHO FEAR HIM. 51He has done mighty deeds with His arm; He has scattered those who were proud in the thoughts of their heart. 52He has brought down rulers from their thrones, and has exalted those who were humble. 53HE HAS FILLED THE HUNGRY WITH GOOD THINGS; and sent away the rich empty-handed. 54He has given help to Israel His servant, in remembrance of His mercy, 55as He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and his descendants forever.”
Psalm 35:9 (NAS) And my soul shall rejoice in the LORD; it shall exalt in His salvation.
“Bringer of Peace”
Luke 2:10-11, 14 (NAS) 10But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; 11for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” 14”Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”
Luke 2:15-18 (NAS) 15When the angels had gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds began saying to one another, “Let us go straight to Bethlehem then, and see this thing that has happened which the Lord has made known to us.” 16So they came in a hurry and found their way to Mary and Joseph, and the baby as He lay in the manger. 17When they had seen this, they made known the statement which had been told them about this Child. 18And all who heard it wondered at the things which were told them by the shepherds.
Luke 2:19 (NAS) But Mary treasured all these things, pondering them in her heart.
Scot McKnight - “Without dismissing the important role played by apostles or evangelists themselves, we must remember the story now being recorded in the Gospels began when Mary began to ponder - - and after pondering - - when Mary began to tell the story about Jesus to others.”
Luke 1:51-52 (NAS) 51“He has done mighty deeds with His arm; He has scattered those who were proud in the thoughts of their heart. 52He has brought down rulers from their thrones, and has exalted those who were humble.”
Jesus is Mary’s Song come to life!
Matthew 19:26 (NAS) “With God all things are possible.”
“The humble will be lifted up. The rulers of the world will be humbled. The rich who exalt themselves will be sent away empty.”
Jesus said “Yes” just like His mother did!
