Mary’s song, the Magnificat, is not just a song to glorify God, though it certainly does that, but it also is prophetic in that it sets the stage for who Jesus is and what he will do. It is a call to follow this, yet unborn, king.
The Magnificat, Mary’s song gives God Glory, but it is also challenging because it challenges human leadership and reinforces the ancient prophecies declaring the Messianic identity of this baby. Mary’s song also recognizes her unique role chosen for her by God. We ask where we are in the song? How do we fit in the image she is portraying? Just who is this Jesus?
