Each gospel writer begins in a different way. Luke starts with the story of a priest named Zechariah and his wife Elizabeth. After a lifetime of faithfulness, they remained childless, a tragedy in the ancient world. If we didn’t know better, we would be tempted to think that Luke’s story is all about Zechariah and Elizabeth. Instead, Luke reveals how God weaves their story into His overarching plan for the universe. Will you let Him do the same for you?
In the time of Herod king of Judea there was a priest named Zechariah, who belonged to the priestly division of Abijah; his wife Elizabeth was also a descendant of Aaron. Both of them were righteous in the sight of God, observing all the Lord’s commands and decrees blamelessly. But they were childless because Elizabeth was not able to conceive, and they were both very old. –Luke 1:5-7
Prayer: Lord, weave my life and leadership into the greater story of what You are doing in the world. In Jesus’ name, amen.
