A Devotion for June 15

My soul magnifies the Lord,
  and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior. ~ Luke 1:46b-47

Mary and Elizabeth are reminded of who the child that Mary is carrying is. John who is in Elizabeth’s womb rejoices as the Holy Spirit indwells his mother and their hearts rejoice, and Mary sings with joy to the Lord.

Does our soul magnify the Lord for his coming to the earth? Are we as exceedingly glad that God was made man and dwelt among us, and not only that but died for us and rose again? 

So often we get caught up in our daily living that we forget to give thanks for this good thing. I once listened to a friend’s sermon, and he noted that the first point in our prayer life should be to give thanks for the new life that we have in Christ. We see hints of this in our prayer book as well. 

Life in Christ is the greatest gift that we have. Let us remember to magnify the Lord for this incredible kindness.
