We have been away from the house for the last couple of days and thus have not read our star advent calendar bible verses. So tonight we each took a star (to catch up) and took turns reading. We started with Luke 1:5 and ended with Luke1:25. In this reading we were reminded about the birth of John the Baptist being foretold. Elizabeth and Zechariah were advanced in years and did not have any children because Elizabeth was barren. While Zechariah was in the the temple of the lord an angel appeared and told him that his prayers had been answered. His wife will have a son and they should call him John. The angel said that he will be great before the Lord and many will rejoice at his birth. Zechariah was also told that John should not drink wine or strong drink and that he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even from his mothers womb. Zechariah doubted what the Angel said and because of this he was silenced and was unable to speak until the birth of his son.
All of these things did come to pass and John did amazing things for the Lord the most important was preparing a way for Christ.
Come Lord Jesus, Come.
