When we look at the song of Mary, often called “The Magnificat,” the call comes to our hearts to join her in the joyful celebration. One great song to do that is “My Soul Magnifies the Lord” by Chris Tomlin.
Listen and you will soon be singing alone! Then Sunday when we study Luke 1:46-55, I hope your heart will find your own soul magnifying the Lord and your spirit rejoicing in God your Savior!
Tomorrow morning as we start the new year with a glorious time of worship, we will “make much of Jesus” as we always do. There is a huge model spelling the word “MAKE” that is featured in our plans for the new year…nothing new, but nothing with any less passion than we have always had as we approached our calling.
This song by Passion kept running through my mind, even as I was putting the message together. The “pure and holy passion,” and the “one magnificent obsession” needed to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ only grow in us when we learn to “make much of Jesus!”
