Mary’s whole life was turned upside down with the news that she would bear a special child. The angel told her that her child would be an eternal king. She was now at the very center of God’s grand plan of redemption. So, how would she respond? Her’s is one of three songs of praise that burst from the lips of those who witnessed the events of Jesus’ birth. But what kind of song does she sing?
Mary’s song of praise expresses adoration to God for three basic things. First, God has a special regard for the humble/lowly; He loves the nobodies. Second, God deals justly with the proud/rebellious; He is making all things right. Finally, God keeps His Word; what He has promised, he will do.
