Did Mary need God's grace in the same way that Tamar, Rahab, Ruth and Bathsheba did? The protestant church sometimes doesn't know what to do with the mother of Jesus. But Mary's own words in Luke 1:46-55 reveal that she needed a Saviour just as much as you and I do.
Her faith and obedience to God are an example to us worthy of emulation. In her song of praise, she reveals that God's grace has extended beyond her - to fulfil the promise made to Abraham and to his offspring - and included in that promise - to you and I.
