Advent Meditation Week 3

December 17: Luke 1:57-66

  • What supernatural sign did God give at John’s circumcision? How did the people respond to the miracle?
  • God had great plans for John. He has different but great plans for you as well. Are you seeking to know and follow them? Are you serving Him with your whole heart and all your ability? See Matthew 6:33 & Colossians 3:23.

Luke 1:57-66English Standard Version (ESV)

The Birth of John the Baptist

57 Now the time came for Elizabeth to give birth, and she bore a son.58 And her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had shown great mercy to her, and they rejoiced with her. 59 And on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child. And they would have called him Zechariah after his father, 60 but his mother answered, “No; he shall be called John.” 61 And they said to her, “None of your relatives is called by this name.” 62 And they made signs to his father, inquiring what he wanted him to be called. 63 And he asked for a writing tablet and wrote, “His name is John.” And they all wondered. 64 And immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue loosed, and he spoke, blessing God. 65 And fear came on all their neighbors. And all these things were talked about through all the hill country of Judea, 66 and all who heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, “What then will this child be?” For the hand of the Lord was with him.
