The Birth of John Promised

Luke 1:11-16 NRSV

“Do not be afraid, Zechariah, for your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son. . . for he will be great in the sight of the Lord. He must never drink wine or strong drink; even before his birth he will be filled with the Holy Spirit. (Luke 1: 13-15)

Babies are gifts from God. What a wonderful promise God gave to Zechariah.
