Luke 1:43

Why am I so favored…

Elizabeth’s question should be our question.  Elizabeth’s curiosity should be our own.  It is the crux of the entire story.

God enters time and changes the world.  It was true for Adam and Eve, Moses, Joshua, David, Elijah, Mary, Elizabeth, Peter and Paul…you and me.

And yet, we are always surprised.  We are favored and yet shocked at this reality; amazed by this blessed truth.

It might not be a bad idea to get used to this gift and honor.
