The Christ of God's Covenant

Read Genesis 18:-7 with Luke 1:39-56

Upon hearing the news that she would be the mother of the Christ, God's Son, Mary went to visit Elizabeth already six months pregnant with John. But this was not simply a meeting of two expectant mothers; this was a meeting of the Old and New Covenant dispensations of the Covenant of Grace. And with Elizabeth confirming prophetically what the angel Gabriel had spoken, Mary truly knew that she was bearing her Lord and Saviour - the Christ of the Covenant of Grace.
