22 Dec, 2019 – Berlin Immanuel Church ended the Christmas retreat on Sunday with a sermon on Mary’s Song in Luke 1:46-55. Meditating on Mary’s response to the good news of the coming of the Savior, we can be reminded of the meaning of Christmas. Mary’s first reaction was confusion and disbelief – Luke 1:29, 34, but she humbled herself and accepted that this is not about her – “I am a virgin” – but about what God is doing. We always fall in the error of thinking of ourselves first, of what we have done or what we have to do. The rich young man who met the Savior but left empty in Luke 18 or Nicodemus in John 3 made this error and Jesus always pointed them to what God is doing – “What is impossible with man is possible with God.” So when Mary put her faith in God, the confusion turned into knowledge of God’s glory, power and grace and she burst into the deepest joy coming from her spirit and a desire you glorify the Lord with her soul, her whole inner being.
