Lessons about the blessings of Christ and the way in which He acts in our lives:
  1. Mary was blessed with the possibility to believe.
    • The faith that Mary exercised was the result of believing that what God has said was so.
    • There is a close relationship between the degree of our faith and our concept of God.
  2. Mary was blessed with the power to be of service to God.
    • When believers sense personally that the God of creation is working in and through them to do His will, there is joy!
    • When we are in the service of the King there is an immortality that accompanies our work.
  3. Mary was the recipient of the paradox of blessedness.
    • To be chosen of God, to be elected as His instrument, there is no higher calling. There is no greater blessing!
    • Joy would soon go unappreciated if there were no suffering with which to contrast it.
