“Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!”

The opening chapter of Luke is really an interesting look at the dynamic between the relatives Mary and Elizabeth. As I read the story of how Mary, after being told she would give birth to Jesus, “the Son of God,” hurried to go visit with Elizabeth, God gave me a glimpse at what can happen when two people, indwelt by God, freely bless each other. It is an amazing picture, a mystery almost: God empowering both Mary and Elizabeth at the same time, to reveal Himself through them by blessing and encouraging each other, because of Him. Am I/we in a hurry to go and visit with a small group of other followers of Jesus in their homes so that I/we can experience Jesus together? Could it be that when a small group of followers of Jesus join together, empowered by the Holy Spirit, to share life in each others homes or wherever life happens, for the purpose of expressing and exalting Jesus, that my/your life could be changed forever? If the Bible says “encourage one another and build each other up” can God do that through me/you? I don’t think it is much of a stretch to say, like Elizabeth : “Blessed is she (the bride of Christ) who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!” Interestingly, Mary then “stayed with Elizabeth for about three months and then returned home.” What an awesome time together with the Lord that must have been!
