Preparing the Path

Luke 1:67-79

Paul Briggs

The follower of Jesus has countless reasons to praise him. Two are specifically are that he has (a) visited and (b) redeemed his people. Luke 1:67-79 is Zechariah’s prophecy that he speaks after not being able to talk for about 9 months. Zechariah’s inability to speak was brought on by his unbelief in the message brought to him by the angelic messenger, Gabriel. The message Gabriel brought to Zechariah was that he and his wife, Elizabeth, would miraculously have a child in their old age (Luke 1:8-20). Despite the protests of the neighbors and relatives of Zechariah and Elizabeth, Zechariah insists that the child be named John, (as Gabriel had said he would be). Immediately Zechariah’s mouth was opened and his tongue was loosed and praise to God flowed from it.

God has a purpose for this world that he designed before time began. God called Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob into that plan and gave them promises to hold onto as they took steps of faith in active obedience. We also fit into God’s purpose as we walk by faith to wherever he takes us. Ultimately all of our stories point to the glory of God as he fulfills his plan in this world.

The Psalms of Ascent (Ps 120-134) offer us help on the journey of our lives as we walk with God through the good times and bad. These psalms help us approach God in worship via avenues of lament, thanksgiving, praise, and celebration. They lead us into worship on the journey: bringing who we are (transparency) to who God is (confidence) together with God’s people (community).  

In Titus, we find the fundamentals of a healthy church. God is clear that the church must have biblical leadership, a growing understanding of God’s Word, and a pursuit of godly living.
