“Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing at the right side of the altar of incense. When Zechariah saw him, he was startled and was gripped with fear. But the angel said to him: “Do not be afraid, Zechariah; you prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to call him John.” Luke 1:13-14
We are kicking off part two of our teaching series, Christmas at Journey, talking about finding peace and a calling in the middle of the craziness of this season! This message takes a closer look at a character that often gets overlooked, and his name is Zechariah. If you’ve ever felt forgotten or like God is silent, this message is for you.
If you are in the “waiting room of life” right now, asking “what is next for me,” here are a few key points for what it looks like in the moment of waiting on God:
- Waiting is never wasted when we are waiting on God.
- God is working while we are waiting.
- We are waiting with God.
- Who we become while we are waiting is an important as what we are waiting for.
- You are not forgotten.
Key Verses: Luke 1:5-25
