Being Blessed

Advent Virtual Bible Study #6

Today’s Virtual Bible Study is written by Jen Byrne, and is a study on Luke 1: 46-55.

This verse from Luke really spoke to me.  “My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices…He has looked with favor on the lowliness of his servant.”  Not only is Mary praising God for choosing her to bear the Savior but she is humbly reminding us of the Messiah’s origins.  She is blessed by God, chosen by God and is humbled by His choice.  When you count your blessings, what are you counting?  Things?  Your bank account?  That new car?  Seems “blessings” can mean different things to each of us but the Bible has a specific message of being blessed.  I enjoyed this article from Sarah Walton titled “What Does it Really Mean to be Blessed?” 

May you celebrate our Savior Jesus Christ and His sacrifice, our ultimate blessing, this Christmas.
