Jesus For Everyone: Expecting the Unexpected
For 400 years, God didn't speak to Israel. Then he sent an angel to tell an old priest that he would have a son who would prepare the way for God's Son. This would be John the Baptist. We can learn some lessons from Zacharias' actions and reactions to the unexpected.
A Faithful Priest (vv. 5-10)
Lesson #1 - God does His best work through ordinary people.
A Fearful Priest (vv.11-17)
Lesson #2 - When God interrupts our plans, it is always for His glory and our good.
A Faithful Priest (vv. 18-25)
Lesson #3 - God's delays are not necessarily His denials.
