Holy is His name

January 6, 2009

The life of Jesus. Read Today: Mary visits Elizabeth, John’s mother Luke 1:39-56

Luke 1:49 LITV
49 For the Mighty One did great things to me, and holy is His name.

Mary goes to visit a reclusive Elizabeth. At her age, even though walking in faith, she would not want to do anything that would possibly harm the baby so she most likely went into seclusion. She most likely worried and wondered about no movement in the womb. The Mary visits and the Baby gives a whale of a kick when he senses the spirit of Jesus nearby.

And Mary reflects. A mighty one did this to me, not man. He is holy. What in your life has God done for you that you might possible think you had done in your power. Did a mighty, holy God do that. Maybe it might be time to reflect on that and give it all the praise for it back to God.

Read for tomorrow: Birth of John the Baptist Luke 1:57 - 80
