Read:  Luke 1:57-66

While Mary was still pregnant with Jesus, Elizabeth and Zechariah had their baby – a boy they named John.  Many thought that the baby should have been named Zechariah (after his dad), but Elizabeth and Zechariah named him John instead . . . being obedient to the instruction they received from the angel a few verses earlier.  This obedience to God restored Zechariah’s ability to talk, and caused many in the area to see God’s work in the lives of this family.

Question of the Day: In what way can your obedience to God bless others in your family, school, neighborhood, or work?

 

NOTE:  Each day between now and Christmas, I will be posting these devotional thoughts concerning Advent to this blog.  The artwork for each day is a product of children from Wildwood Community Church‘s Children’s ministry.  You can also access these posts via the “wildwoodchildren” Instagram feed or Wildwood Community Church’s Facebook page.
