Joy to the World (3)

Our Bible verses today tell us that Mary praised God with all her heart while she was visiting Elizabeth. Mary was very happy, and she called God her “Savior.” Mary was humbled that God would choose her to carry baby Jesus in her womb. Mary respected God and this made her happy.
Isaiah 7:14 says, “But the Lord will still show you this sign: The young woman is pregnant and will give birth to a son. She will name him Immanuel.” The word Immanuel means “God with us.” This verse is talking about Mary giving birth to Jesus.
During this holiday time, we should praise and thank God for His many blessings to us. We should not just be thankful for things we have. We should also be thankful for our families and friends and that we have the freedom to worship God.
