Elizabeth - Voice of Blessing
Luke 1:5-25, 57-80
Elizabeth had experienced God's blessing. He had taken away the reproach of her childlessness. He had signaled the presence of her Messiah through the joyful leap of the baby in her womb. In response, she pronounced a blessing that would extend beyond Mary, who stood before her. It would encompass the nation of Israel and eventually the whole world.
