Read: Luke 1:67-80

Do you have a few favorite Christmas songs?  Christmas is certainly a time of year for singing.  We saw two days ago the very first Christmas song (Mary’s song) ever written.  Today, we see the second Christmas song written – the song of Zechariah.  Zechariah sung this song at the birth of his son John the Baptist.  Though the occasion was the birth of John, Zechariah sung about John’s cousin, Jesus, who would soon be born.  John’s role would be to help clear a path in people’s hearts to prepare them to receive Jesus as their Savior (Luke 1:76-77).

Question of the Day:  What are some ways we can help “clear a path” in the hearts of our friends and family to help them know Jesus as their Savior?

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.
