A MAN SENT FROM GOD

Day 1

Bible Reading:   

Luke 1: 5-14 & 57-64

5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the division of Abijah. His wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elizabeth.

6 And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.

7 But they had no child, because Elizabeth was barren, and they were both well advanced in years.

8 So it was, that while he was serving as priest before God in the order of his division,

9 according to the custom of the priesthood, his lot fell to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord.

10 And the whole multitude of the people was praying outside at the hour of incense.

11 Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing on the right side of the altar of incense.

12 And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him.

13 But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John.

14 And you will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth.


57 Now Elizabeth’s full time came for her to be delivered, and she brought forth a son.

58 When her neighbors and relatives heard how the Lord had shown great mercy to her, they rejoiced with her.

59 So it was, on the eighth day, that they came to circumcise the child; and they would have called him by the name of his father, Zacharias.

60 His mother answered and said, “No; he shall be called John.”

61 But they said to her, “There is no one among your relatives who is called by this name.”

62 So they made signs to his father?what he would have him called.

63 And he asked for a writing tablet, and wrote, saying, “His name is John.” So they all marveled.

64 Immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue loosed, and he spoke, praising God.

“There came a man who was sent from God. His name was John.” That was how John the Apostle introduced John the Baptist to us. Our reading tells us how this man's life and ministry began.

It had been 400 years since Malachi, the last Old Testament prophet, had given God's promise, “I will send my messenger who will prepare the way before me.” Now God was about to fulfill His word.

John was born some months before Christ. Why was this baby named John? Because God's angel said that would be his name. (1:13). God chose “John” because it means “God has been gracious” or “God's gracious gift”.

Baby John was a remarkable gift to a very elderly couple who had never had any children. Did you notice what the angel said to Zacharias? “Your prayer has been heard.” Those words could have two meanings. They could mean Zacharias and Elizabeth had prayed for a child for years. Or they could mean Zacharias had been asking God to fulfill His promise, remember His people and send the one who would redeem them.

Baby John never became what humanly speaking, he would have been. His father was a Leviticus priest, as his grandfather had been and generations before them. John should have been a priest, too, but God had other plans. Zacharias recognised this - look at verse 76. Isn't it a remarkable prophecy?

There is much we don't know but here was a couple who were willing for God's will and for their son to follow that will, even though it meant a new pathway for them all.

A VERSE TO REMEMBER: “The man who does the will of God lives forever.” (I John 2:17)
