Passage: Luke 1:39–1:45

Luke 1:39-45

Jesus removes the barriers between us.

The Old Covenant and New Covenant collide in Elizabeth’s home.

41 And when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the baby leaped in her womb.
And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit,

And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, 42 and she exclaimed with a loud cry, “Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! 43 And why is this granted to me that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 For behold, when the sound of your greeting came to my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. 45 And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord.”

An essential fruit of being filled with God’s Spirit is proclaiming praise to Jesus.
