How to hear a message from God and then respond to it! Luke 1:1-10
1Many people have tried to tell the story of what God has done among us. 2They wrote what we had been told by the ones who were there in the beginning and saw what happened. 3So I made a careful study of everything and then decided to write and tell you exactly what took place. Honorable Theophilus, 4I have done this to let you know the truth about what you have heard.
5When Herod was king of Judea, there was a priest by the name of Zechariah from the priestly group of Abijah. His wife Elizabeth was from the family of Aaron. 6Both of them were good people and pleased the Lord God by obeying all that he had commanded. 7But they did not have children. Elizabeth could not have any, and both Zechariah and Elizabeth were already old. 8One day Zechariah's group of priests were on duty, and he was serving God as a priest. 9According to the custom of the priests, he had been chosen to go into the Lord's temple that day and to burn incense
I wonder…If God would say He was pleased with me?
Am I a good person? Do I obey all He has asked?
What has He asked me to do above all else?
Do I, even when life is not going my way, remain faithful to God?
What have I been chosen to do this Christmas season?
This applies to me….
The greatest commandment is to love God more than anything, do I? Would God say that He is pleased with me? What a question.
God is always faithful to me, but could He say the same about me? Zechariah and his wife faced the worse thing that could happen to a Jewish couple, no children, and yet he still served as a priest. God chose Him that day, because of his actions, not perfect, as we will see, but sincere. God has chosen something for us to do if we will be like Zechariah; a good person and obedient to God. Will we be faithful today?
My key verse for today…
