Luke 1.39-56. Our Journey to Christmas: Dec 17 2017
This week we continue our journey towards Christmas, our preparation for Chris’s coming into the world. After the angel visits, Mary rushes to Elizabeth, and baby John the Baptist leaps at their encounter- his first witness to his Lord. And then Mary’s wonderful song of Prise -‘My soul glorifies the Lord…’ While the Bible calls us to worship God alone, we do honour Mary for her Spirit-given insight into the purposes of God, along with other heroes of our faith. And we rejoice with her in the total salvation offered in her child- Jesus. But what will Christ do to bring this salvation? And how does it become ours? And when can we taste it? These questions explored today, in Advent 3.
