The Visitation

Luke 1:39—45
39 Now at this time Mary arose and went in a hurry to the hill country, to a city of Judah, 40 and entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth. 41 And it happened that when Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 42 And she cried out with a loud voice and said, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! 43 And how has it happened to me, that the mother of my Lord would come to me? 44 For behold, when the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby leaped in my womb for joy. 45 And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her by the Lord.”

“How precious it must have been for Mary and Elizabeth to embrace, share their good news, and discuss what God had done. What they shared was unique. They alone were chosen to bear the children of promise, and they were the first to know that God had come to redeem His people.” Dr. Philip Graham Ryken
