Anticipation of the King
Anticipation! Anticipation is the wonder of Christmas. We wait expectantly for the presents under the tree. As we grow older, we wait in anticipation for the presence of loved ones around the tree. Anticipation means there is more to come. Christmas anticipates something wonderful: the indescribable gift of JESUS. God’s gift of His Son is greater than any present we’ll find under or around a tree.
In the Gospel of Luke 1:39-56, we find Elizabeth and Mary – two ordinary women who anticipate the extra-ordinary gift of God. We discover two godly examples of how we should worship God with magnificent anticipation.
