When we see and sense Jesus is near, worship is a natural result. Don’t hold back.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Luke 1:45 - You are blessed because you believed that the Lord would do what he said."
Read - Luke 1:39-80
Twice in today’s text, someone is filled with song/worship when thinking about the goodness of God to them. When we are paying attention, we will see that God is always at work in our lives and in the world around us. Here are some great responses to that: praise, worship, thanksgiving, testimony, prayer. What do you do when you see God at work?
Lord, I will worship You alone!
Can you be a part of the Mending work of Christ? Certainly, we are saved by faith alone in Christ alone. However, God uses His followers to be instruments to share Jesus. By that, the seed of God’s Word is sown into the world. In today’s text, you see two examples of how God could use you to bring others to the Mending salvation available through Christ. 1. When you share what God has done as both Mary and Zechariah did then you are pointing others to God. 2. When you walk out your purpose on the planet you will be actively participating in God’s grander purpose of salvation just as Zechariah’s prophetic song speaks of John the Baptist in verse 77.
