For the next couple of weeks, we want to look at the book of Luke. Please, do leave your contributions or questions in the comment section. I look forward to learning from you. God bless you as we take this journey through the book of Luke.
According to Luke, this book is authentic. He got them from eyewitnesses and ministers of the word. And he had a perfect understanding of all things from the very beginning. Also, he was writing to a man who was most likely recently been told about Christ. So, Luke was writing so he would understand the certainty of what he heard.
Zacharias and Elizabeth kept serving God and were blameless in spite of the fact that they had no children. Surely, they had prayed for children but none came. Yet it never stopped their service unto God. And God answered them, and the baby came with God-ordained assignment. So, no matter how long it takes, God will surely answer. Therefore, just believe and the Lord will give you the best. Surely, it’s worth waiting on God.
Zacharias doubted because he considered his flesh and not the word that came from God. So, we should always put God’s word above our flesh or the facts around us. Also, he was made dumb, probably, to stop him from canceling God’s plans with words of unbelief. This is because we will get satisfied by the fruit of our lips, and we will have what we say.
A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; And with the increase of his lips shall he be filled – Proverbs 18:20 (KJV).
For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says – Mark 11:23 (NKJV).
Mary didn’t doubt but wanted to know how it would happen, since she was a virgin. And indeed, with God nothing is impossible.
Truly, if you will believe, there will always be a performance of whatever God says to you.
From the sayings of Mary, you can tell what qualified her to be the mother of our Saviour. So, among other things, she was humble, feared God, very thankful and praiseful.
The prophecy of Zacharias told what the baby was to fulfil. And this reminds us that we all came with a purpose to fulfil. In addition, his coming was to enable us to serve God without fear. Therefore, serve God without fear. Again, John didn’t show himself to the world until it was time. Rather, he spent the early years preparing himself. So, don’t run to start off any assignment from God until He says so. Instead, use the waiting time to prepare yourself for success.
