Mary’s Magnificat (Luke 1:39-56)

Mary’s Magnificat (Luke 1:39-56)

Main idea: Let us magnify the Lord who mightily and mercifully establishes his salvation by lifting up the humble and humbling the proud.


  1. The Lord’s might and mercy towards Mary (Luke 1:46-49)
  2. The Lord’s might and mercy towards Israel (Luke 1:50-55)
  3. Two points of application
    • We must steep ourselves in the world of God’s Word
    • We must situate ourselves in the storyline of Scripture
