In this passage we see the joy that both Mary and Elizabeth experienced. As Christians, we can experience this same joy knowing that Jesus was born, He lived, He died for our sins, He rose from the grave and we will spend an eternal life with Him. We can have joy because God has acted and shown us love and mercy. Even though we are saved, the right relationship we can have with God is recognising that we are eternally dependent on Him. We need to be obedient, as Mary was. Through obedience to God, His Spirit has the opportunity to fill us with humility. We can be humble because Jesus has chosen us to be a part of His family, which has nothing to do with what we have done.
