Promises Kept

Dec 23, 2011

Summary: Let's take a look at what God promises and the way he does that

Luke 1:5-24,57-66

PROMISES KEPT

- Let's take a look at what God promises and the way he does that

PROMISE: "Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you will name him John."

- unrealistic

- against experience

- Zechariah is looking backwards instead of forward

PROMISE: "He will turn many of the people of Israel to the Lord their God."

- uncomfortable

- radical (radix)

- Zechariah is the first one to be turned around

PROMISE: "Because you did not believe my words, which will be fulfilled in their time, you will become mute, unable to speak, until the day these things occur."

- undoing our powers

- shut up more often

PROMISES KEPT: "Immediately after naming John John his mouth was opened and his tongue freed, and he began to speak, praising God."

- he is celebrating quite a journey

- may this celebration help us join Zechariah in his praising

Talk about it...

So, what did you think?


Thank you.
