God is called “Savior,” as He saves His people from sin. All mankind from Adam onward have sinned and the judgment of this sin is death. It is for this very fact that we need a savior. Even the mother of the Lord had need of her Savior and would have been spiritually lost without Him. Mary was a sinner and by God’s grace embraced her Savior. She rejoices in that joy which she had in common with all believers, that she had a true Savior.
Mary’s position is seen also in the following scriptures. First, Mary acknowledged herself to be a saved sinner. “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior....’” (Luke 1:46-47). Then both Joseph and Mary offered a sin offering according to the law of God. [Joseph and Mary came to Jerusalem] “to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.” (Luke 2:24). If Mary was without sin, there would have been no need to offer up a pair of birds as a sacrifice to the Lord.
We can all thank the Lord that Mary was and is truly “blessed among women”; however, we know that she was not blessed as equal to the Lord Jesus Christ. For the Word of God proclaims, “I am the Lord; that I my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.” (Isaiah 42:8)
