And Mary said:

“My soul glorifies the Lord
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has been mindful
of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
for the Mighty One has done great things for me—
holy is his name.
His mercy extends to those who fear him,
from generation to generation.
He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
He has brought down rulers from their thrones
but has lifted up the humble.
He has filled the hungry with good things
but has sent the rich away empty.
He has helped his servant Israel,
remembering to be merciful
to Abraham and his descendants forever,
just as he promised our ancestors.
— Luke 1:46-55

Look closer. Mary's song shows how ignorant we can be about God's ways. Just stop and consider for a moment. Can we fathom the marvelous way God became a man? Immanuel. God with us. He often works the opposite way we would choose. Beyond our limited understanding is where God works miracles. Can we fathom the marvelous reasons God became a man? Our Savior. A baby born to die.

Take the time to marvel at the details this Christmas season. It may be the opposite birth plan we would have chosen but it is the perfect plan that brings eternal life and hope to the world. Because of Jesus we shall not die but live! Join us this month as we marvel alongside Mary about our Deliverer!
