bow 2 the queen

Today we celebrate the Queenship of Mary. Does this mean we worship her? No. Queen is a human term. She really is Queen. In Scripture the Queen Mother (Gebirah) was very important. “So Bathsheba went to King Solomon to speak to him about Adonijah; the king got up to meet her and bowed before her; he then sat down on his throne; a seat was brought for the king’s mother, and she sat down on his right.” 1 Kings 2:19. Even the king bows before the Queen Mother. She sits at the right hand of the King. What about Mary? Mary was told in Luke chapter 1 that she would give birth to a Son and “God would give to him the throne of his father David…and of his Kingdom there will be no end.” Jewish readers would have seen in Mary the Queen mother! Jesus is still the King and Mary is the Queen. If you don’t believe check out the Woman of Revelation 12. Even Elizabeth refers to Mary as the “Mother of my Lord”: “Who am I that the Mother of My Lord should come to me?” (Luke 1:43). Also, we see someone ask the Queen Mother to intercede before the King. “Pray ask King Solomon-he will not refuse you…”(1 Kings 2:17) Mary too in scripture intercedes with her Son at the wedding of Cana. “They have no wine.” (John 2:3). Wine symbolizes grace. Mary is full of grace. She through her prayers is a Spiritual Mother and obtains blessings for us and helps us to better receive all the grace Jesus earned for us on the cross. She became our Mother in her suffering beneath the Cross in union with her Son. She was the one totally receptive to God’s love and mercy. While Jesus died for all, not all open to receive. Mary helps us to receive. Mary, be the Queen of our Hearts so Jesus may reign there as King! When we love you our love is ordered to God.
