My Spirit  Has Rejoiced  in God  My Savior

Some people just have a mechanical  “joy”  over Christmas.     They’ll go through the routines of decorations,  shopping,  and get-togethers.     But,  they don’t really know  any sort  of joy  over God coming down  to be our Savior  from sin.     They don’t realize the consequences  of their sins  or their need for a Savior.     Either they don’t realize  their need  or they outright deny their need.

But,  as Mary thought about  the baby within her  and God’s purpose  of making Him king over all  forever,  she told her cousin, Elizabeth,  in Luke 1:47,

My spirit  has rejoiced  in God  my Savior.

In Mary’s humbleness,  she realized  her sinful nature  and need  for a “Savior”  from sin.     Her  “spirit”  within her  was filled  with awe,  and she really  “rejoiced  in God  my Savior”.     Eternal salvation  from sin  was important  to her  because of  the LORD’s  pure holiness  and our desperate need  to be holy  in order  to enter heaven.     Maybe  she was acquainted  with Psalm 70:4,  written by King David  —  her ancestor,

Let all  who seek You  rejoice  and be glad  in You;
And let those  who love  Your salvation  say continually,
“Let God  be magnified.”

Mary always sought  to be pleasing  in God’s sight.     We know that  because when the angel Gabriel greeted her  in Luke 1:28,  he said,

“Hail,  favored one!     The Lord is with you.”

May we all  “seek” the Lord  so that we may  “rejoice  and be glad”  in the Lord.     Then,  with the Lord  in our hearts,  we will bless the Lord  and  “rejoice”  in the right way,  saying,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  we want Your name  and salvation  to be greatly magnified  in our lives.     Thank You  for loving us  and sending Jesus  to be our Savior.”

Love,
Margaret
