Magnify The Lord
How do we respond to the sheer wonder of the incarnation of God's Son? Mary responded to the announcement of the birth of the Saviour with a song of praise. Her words were deep and with feeling - truly an experience which had affected her inner being. Yes, she was confused at first but she was willing to submit to God. She praises God for His character and for keeping His promises even when circumstances seemed to contradict that with the long wait over centuries for the Messiah. Martyn Lloyd-Jones meditates on Mary's Song of Praise and applies it to our lives. He looks at our response to God and how God deals with us. We find that the new birth is all of God and nothing of ourselves.
