Day 13 - The Actors: Mary and Elizabeth rejoice.

Luke 1:41-43 - When Elizabeth heard Mary’s

greeting, the baby leaped inside her, and

Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.

(42) Then she exclaimed with a loud cry:

“Blessed are you among women, and your child

will be blessed! (43) How could this happen to

me, that the mother of my Lord should come to

me?

It would have been wonderful to listen in on Mary and Elizabeth’s conversation, wouldn’t

it? Both women had been given priceless gifts from God to carry children of destiny.

Elizabeth was six months into her pregnancy and Mary was just starting, but she was

far enough along that John the Baptist recognized the presence of Jesus in her womb

and jumped for joy.

The Holy Spirit oversaw every aspect of the Christmas story!
