Mark Williams latest sermon had to do with Mary’s song, The Magnificat. This week the backdrop had tasteful Christmas lights and I know of no Christian program that has better eye appeal than the new appearance at the North Cleveland CoG. This week I tried to compare William’s overall appearance and sermon with what is on national TV and I could think of no one who is doing a better job.
He kept the tone of Mary’s exuberance throughout the message and didn’t bring up what I did in our S.S. class. Which was that this was not a prophecy for as a prophecy her great expectations have not been fulfilled. The unborn baby in Elizabeth’s womb that leaped for joy was beheaded while he was still a young man. Jesus her own son would be rejected when they choose Barabbas instead. Her great hope for the Jews has also been a disappointment. In 70 A D, Jerusalem was destroyed and the Jews have been widely persecuted in almost every country they have lived in since that time. The lesson I think is that life is often a great emotional journey with high hopes and joy one day and deep sorrow and disappointments at other times.
