This week’s sermon is based upon Luke 1-2, specifically the passages about Mary. Luke pays special attention to communicating how God’s ways subvert man’s ways in regards to wealth and status, so as you read, make note of how he does this. Luke’s writing is also an interesting complement to Matthew’s Christmas story because Matthew says very little of Mary and Luke says very little of Joseph. Mary’s Song in Luke 1:46-55 is a compilation of Old Testament references, many from 1 Samuel 2:1-11, which is known as Hannah’s Song. Certainly, spending some time in these passages of Scripture will bring depth to your Christmas celebration and doing so is a good way to help prepare your heart for Sunday worship.
