41 And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:
42 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.
43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
44 For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.
At the sound of Mary’s greeting, Elizabeth’s child leaped within her and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
As a woman of God, are you a noise maker or a news maker, do you make noise or make a sound. Noise is a disturbance, when you make a noise people frown because no one enjoys noise, you might even be told to shut up. But a sound on the other hand catches people’s attention. they want to see where that sound came from or who produced the sound.
Mary made a sound, also understand that both noise and sound could be words, but Mary;s words and the fact that it came from Mary made it a sound. Jesus can say “good morning” and Judas says the same thing. Jesus definitely will make a sound but Judas, a noise.
Mary’s sound was powerful, though the greeting might have been an ordinary hello but Mary was encompassed by God’s favour most of all, most of all she was carrying Jesus. So, immediately she came in, she affected the environment an unborn baby leaped and by her greeting alone. Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, isn’t that awesome.
I want to assure you today that what happened then, can happen now! Hebrews 13:8 Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. Even if we can’t give birth or carry Jesus in our womb like Mary.but as Christians we ought to carry God in us through His word which is Jesus Christ. The more of word you carry, the more of Jesus you carry. and when you carry Jesus, people notice it, they feel the presence of Go when you arrive.
I was told of a man who went to the barbers and as the barber was giving him a shave, he asked him “Who are you” and told the client that there was something about him. Do you know what that thing was? It was the fact that he carried Jesus Christ in him.
when we study the word, we partake of divine nature and become more and more like God. and remember that it is Christ in us, the hope of glory, not worldly music in us or boyfriend in our lives or sex or connections but Christ in us.
Mary carried Jesus and she made a sound, everything changed. What are you carrying? what sound are you making? May God give you wisdom and grace to do what you have to do to carry more and more of Jesus in you.
Lord, i want to make a sound and not a noise. I want people to feel your presence when i make a sound. Infact, Lord, I don’t want to speak before people know that God is there. Let your light shine in my life. Give me grace to study your word and help me to thirst for more of you so I can carry more and more of Jesus as I go on in life. Thank you Jesus because it is done in Jesus’ name. Amen!
