The Baby Leaped sermon video. Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and then the baby leaped in her womb. The baby leaped and was alive. He was already named. His name was John given by God. He already had an important destiny in life. Luke didn’t write about how the “mass” leaped, or the “fetus” leaped.

Every baby in every womb is known by God as was John known, named by God, predestined by God, hopefully a man or woman of God as was John.

Add to this the small town fundamentalism and we can relate to both Mary and Elizabeth.

Elizabeth was pregnant with John the Baptist, the forerunner for the Messiah. Mary was pregnant with Jesus (Emmanuel). Both John and Jesus will be great, making Elizabeth and Mary maximum not marginal women. I want you moms to know you are of maximum importance. God chose you to birth and raise your children. That makes you amazing. As Elizabeth and Mary were primary to the success of the kingdom, you are primary to the success of the kingdom of God.
