We’re Pregnant!

Passage: Micah 5:2-5a, Hebrews 10:5-10, Luke 1:39-55

If you think of Mary as a demure young lady singing a sweet little song, think again! She’s proclaiming the arrival of the One who will turn the world upside down. From tiny little Bethlehem comes the greatest gift ever! From the barren womb of old lady Elizabeth comes the radical prophet and baptizer. From the mouth of a young, unmarried pregnant girl comes words of unswerving commitment, and a song of praise to God for fulfilling His promises, even before those promises are realized. It’s not a lullaby, but a call to arms!
