Luke 1:11-17 Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing at the right side of the altar of incense. When Zechariah saw him, he was startled and was gripped with fear. But the angel said to him: “Do not be afraid, Zechariah; your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and. You are to give him the name John. He will be a joy and delight to you, and may will rejoice because of his birth, for he will be great in the sight of the Lord. He is never to take wine or other fermented drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even from birth. Many of the people of Israel will he bring back to the Lord their God. And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous – to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”
It’s Christmastime! The most wonderful time of the year. The preparations have begun. They can be seen in the stores. They can be seen as you drive through your neighborhood. They can be seen in your own home. May God bless you durning this time of preparation as you prepare those around you for the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.
