I continued the “Beginnings” series this weekend at Eastbrook Church by looking at the moving story of Mary found in Luke 1:26-56. My biggest challenges were addressing a passage that we all know so well while also covering a lot of important passages at once, from the annunciation to the Magnificat.
You can view the message below or follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or through our audio podcast. Also, join in with the weekday reading plan for this entire journey through Luke here.
An Angel, a Young Woman, and a Child: The King on the Horizon (Luke 1:26-38)
The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”
Two Unexpected Mothers and a Bouncing Baby Boy: Blessing on the Horizon (Luke 1:39-45)
When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
Mary’s Song of Joy to God: Salvation on the Horizon (Luke 1:46-56)
And Mary said:
“My soul glorifies the Lord
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior”
