“How can I be sure this will happen? I am an old man, and my wife is well advanced in years.” –Luke 1:18
Read: Luke 1
Not his best moment. If you read today’s chapter, you know that Zacharias has just been given really great news; news of eternal significance. He’s been told that Elizabeth will bear him a son. And his son will go before the Lord with the spirit and power of Elijah no doubt. He’ll be the frontrunner! And not only that, the courier of this miracle message wasn’t a neighbor. It wasn’t a trusted uncle or even the High Priest. No, Zacharias heard this first-hand from — wait for it — none other than Angel Gabriel himself.
