The Christmas season is here. For many people, Christmas is a time for family and friends to visit. Often times we welcome others by saying, “Make Yourself at Home.” We create a place where others feel comfortable and welcome. Christmas is a time when we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. We proclaim the coming of the savior of the world and welcome him to earth and into our hearts.
Mary, the mother of Jesus, was faced with the exciting news that she would be the vessel the Lord would use to bring the Messiah into the world. She welcomed this news with grace and faithfulness. Mary seems to do this with no hesitation or fear. How?
How was Mary able to take this news in stride and look expectantly on the birth of Christ? The answer can be found in her song, often called the Magnificat. Join us as we study this beautiful and telling song. Let’s all be encouraged to have the same unflinching faith Mary had as we start this Christmas season.
