<063> Thesis: We need to enlarge our understanding of the Lord as the Executor of Grace so that we can effectively deal with the daily circumstances of our lives. Introduction: This morning we have come to Mary's response to Elizabeth's loud outburst as Luke records it in Luke 1:39-56. There are many things in this text that have the capacity to adjust our way of thinking about God, but Mary's opening statement may actually be the most significant. Therefore, we are going to spend our time together this morning considering the opening words of her response to Elizabeth.
