Worshipping the Lord at His Incarnation


  1. Elizabeth (1:41-45)
  2. Mary (1:46-55)
  3. Zecharias (1:63-79)
  4. Simeon (2:25-35)
  5. Anna (2:38)
  6. The angels (2:8-14)
  7. The Shepherds (2:15-18)
  8. The Eastern Wise Men (Matthew 2:2-11)

The first five were filled with the Holy Spirit, worshipped in the Spirit and spoke prophetic utterances.

What Did They Do and Say?

  1. Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist (Luke 1:41-45).
    She blessed Mary, who had come to her, assured and encouraged her.

  2. Mary, the mother of Jesus (Luke 1:46-55).
    "My soul magnifies the Lord.
    "My spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior."

    She gave her reasons for this:
    He that is mighty has done great things and holy is His name.

    • God regarded her low estate; exalted them of low degree.
    • He has filled the hungry with good things.
    • He helped his servant Israel, in mercy.
    • All generations will call her blessed.
    • His mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.
    • He shewed strength with his arm.
    • He scattered the proud in the imaginations of their heart.
    • He put down the mighty from their seats.
    • He sent the rich away empty.
