Read today’s scripture: Luke 1:57-66
God is moving and shaking things up, and I love it! Elizabeth, who is way past the child bearing age has a baby boy. Then she breaks all tradition and gives him a name that is not a family name. These seem like small insignificant things, but these small details pave the wave for our Savior’s birth! John was Jesus’ hype man, as I like to say. He came and got people excited for Jesus’ coming. He was preparing them for something so much bigger. He was loud, he was different, but he did it so that through him people could get themselves ready for Jesus!
It is proven that during this season people are more open to hearing the message of Jesus. May we as believers do everything we can to pave the way for His return. May we take full advantage of the Christmas season, and every day, to make His name known!
