As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!”

– Luke 1:44-45 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

The young Mary and her elderly relative Elizabeth experience incredible encouragement when they see each other. Why? Because these two women should not be pregnant, yet they are witnessing the miracle of God in each other. Even when we feel that we are doing what God wants us to do, we need community to strengthen us for the journey. Life and light fill our soul when others confirm what God is doing in our lives, and we can be a source of hope for others who need our perspective to keep going forward.
