And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: Luke 1:41 The babe, John, leaped for joy at Mary’s voice. Mary, the mother of his saviour! Here we see the Holy Spirit at work in a child, not yet born. What a precious miracle. Have you ever wondered how often the Holy Spirit moves in the lives of unborn children? What a question to ponder! Elisabeth was also filled with the Holy Spirit. Read on in verses 42 through 46 of Luke Chapter 1. She testifies as to who Mary is and to what her yet unborn child has done. Elisabeth tells Mary that “the babe leaped in my womb for joy.” The Holy Spirit also blesses Mary for believing the Lord. How different than what Elisabeth’s husband Zacharias did. Have joy and believe! The Christ Child is here. The Holy Spirit can give you this.
It is interesting to note that when Jesus teaches in the Bible that the people noticed something different about his teaching. “For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.” Matthew 7:29 The teaching of Jesus is worth studying, because it has with it the authority of God.
