Text: Luke 1:39-56

The angel has announced the birth of John (to Zacharias) and Jesus (to Mary).  Now Mary goes to see Zacharias’ wife, Elizabeth.  These two women, who were carrying sons of destiny in their wombs, encourage each other and magnify the Lord.

Some practical lessons we will consider include:

  1. We all need and benefit from fellowship/mutual encouragement.
  2. Many of our problems are because we have an inadequate view of God.  Such problems can be solved when we learn to magnify the Lord.
  3. The presence of Christ is cause for great joy.
  4. God exalts the humble and humbles the proud.
