As Mary sings her Magnificat, she is particularly delighted in the way God turns things upside down: the mighty are brought low and the humble are lifted up, the hungry are filled and the full are sent away empty, the servants are served. The only thing that isn’t surprising is that God has been faithful to do exactly what He promised to our fathers. This morning as you come to worship, rejoice along with Mary. Be glad that you too have been turned upside down: your stony heart has been replaced by a soft heart, your cursing lips have been healed and now speak praise. You were an orphan and a rebel, and now you are a glad servant of King Jesus, and a beloved child of God.
