Notably, Jesus says that Mary will be remembered on account of the great service she provided to the Lord. Matthew Henry writes, “The honor of Christ is principally intended in the gospel, yet the honor of his saints and servants is not altogether overlooked.” Though we could by no means ever deserve it, God has chosen to honor those who serve Him. We may feel like a dishonored people now, but our exaltation is sure to come if we serve Jesus faithfully.
