“My soul magnifies the Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has looked on the humble estate of his servant.”
~ Luke 1:46-48
Some call it the "Magnificat" from an old Latin translation.
It's Mary's song.
There are two verses:
The first is good news for all people-
a savior has come!
Mary will give birth to Jesus, the savior of the world.
Her soul swells with joy and praise!
The second verse is different.
It's a message to the world.
Things are about to change.
The humble will be lifted up,
but the proud will be brought down.
Everything is going to change when Jesus is born.
Some will welcome the change.
But others, not so much.
Join us in this Sunday.
And join us the first category-
Let us welcome the savior,
not just of our souls,
but of all the world!
