And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. For He hath regarded the low estate of His handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. For He that is mighty hath done to me great things; and Holy is His Name. And His mercy is on them that fear Him from generation to generation. He hath shewed strength with His arm; He hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree. He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich He hath sent empty away. He hath holpen His servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy; As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever. (Luke 1:46-55)
Mary knew that she was just a humble servant of the Most High. Her worship was all about Him and all that God had promised and was doing, for her and for all people. His promised salvation had come in the person of the child she was carrying. His grace was given through His Spirit to all who would receive it and His mighty works were coming to pass. His mercy is given to all who fear Him and are obedient unto His Word. The proud are cast down and the mighty in their own strength fail. God exalts His humble servants, not to godhead or divinity, for only God is God, but obedient service is rewarded in God’s time and God keeps His promises. Mary knew the Lord and rejoiced in the only One who could save her from her sins.
God brought forth His Son for the Salvation of whosoever will repent and receive Him by faith in Him and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary. Mary was a chosen vessel for His work and we are chosen for the work He has for us to do. All are in need of a Saviour to save us from our sins and only God can save. No one is without sin, and sin separates us from God and only by faith through His grace can Salvation come to those who put their trust in Jesus Christ. From Moses to John, from Abel to Zechariah, from John the Baptist to John the son of Zebedee, and all Christians since, all have had to be saved by faith through grace and the power of the Holy Spirit which gives us new life when we are born again. God is our Saviour, our Creator, Redeemer, and King and He calls all to repent of their sins and be reconciled unto Him just as He reconciled Mary and all those before and since who have received Him.
Just as Mary was a willing and obedient servant, God has sent those of us who are His saints and know Him out into this world to reach the lost that they might be saved from sin. He desires that His people strive to be holy and obedient unto Him that we might minister to those around us who are hurting and in need as He provides. We serve others, equipped with the Word of reconciliation and righteousness, rightly divided and fitly spoken, that they may see Christ in us, the hope of Glory. Our God has commanded us to love one another with an unfeigned love, even as He first loved us, and to disciple one another in the Word of God so that we may all grow in grace and in the Knowledge of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Our Lord has commissioned those who are His with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to go where He sends us in the power of the Holy Spirit. As we go, we are to proclaim the Good News of forgiveness through repentance and reconciliation with the Father through faith in His Son, that those who believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah of God might have life in His Name.
God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. God calls you to faith in Christ and His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with God, forgiveness from God, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of God who is God the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
