Zis-N-Zat From Pastor Asher

God is my conscience, Jesus lives in my heart… this blog is about what I see, what I think, what I do and how I serve God

Sunday of the Fourth Week of Advent

Luke 1:39-45 NIV2010

Mary Visits Elizabeth

39 At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, 40 where she entered Zechariah’s home and greeted Elizabeth. 41 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 42 In a loud voice she exclaimed: “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! 43 But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. 45 Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”

Elizabeth knew her younger cousin Mary and she recognized her as soon as Mary crossed the threshold of their dwelling. Elizabeth also recognized that Mary was pregnant with the Coming Messiah and that the First Advent was at hand. Do you recognize the Holy around you? Do you see God at work in your life and in the lives of your neighbors?
