Luke 1:57-80 talks about something special about God that other verses of this chapter have already discussed. The explanation given here agrees perfectly with all the other prophecies foretelling the birth of messiah. God chooses whomever he wants in his sovereignty to use in order to fulfill his purposes. Now to understand clearly about selection and sovereignty of God, verses 57-80 of Luke makes a clear comment on that issue. Firstly, God chooses a noble village girl called Mary who is lowly and poor from a small town. Angel Gabriel from God appears to Mary and gives her the news that she will conceive a child with the power of the spirit from God and the child to be born will be called the son of the highest God. Mary accepts the great news and wants her cousin Elizabeth to know. But before the angel goes back to heaven, he tells her about Elizabeth who also has conceived a child in her old age because she was known to be barren. The angel does this to assure her that nothing is impossible with God. Secondly, God makes it clear how, where and when the messiah would be born. Prophecies foretell that the child would be born in a small town called Bethlehem, the city of David and that’s exactly where the child is born. This helps us to understand that God is sovereign and that he controls every event that unfolds on earth. Now, knowing that about God, what does it mean to us? This helps us to understand that God never changes. He was the same God in the past, he is the same God in the present and he continues to be the same God in the future and we can trust him completely because he never disappoints.
