Advent: 6

"In the time of Herod king of Judea there was a priest named Zechariah, who belonged to the priestly division of Abijah; his wife Elizabeth was also a descendant of Aaron. Both of them were upright in the sight of God, observing all the Lord's commandments and regulations blamelessly. But they had no children, because Elizabeth was barren; and they were both well along in years."

National leadership that opposes and feels threatened by the Truth of Christ.

(This sounds frighteningly familiar)

A faithful couple who pleased the Lord in every way,

(This sounds utterly unattainable)

but still faced prolonged sorrow.

(This sounds like a need for a Savior)

Life breaks and falls apart
But we know these are
Places where grace is soon to be so amazing
It may be unfulfilled
It may be unrestored
But when anything that's shattered is laid before the Lord
Just watch and see
It will not be unredeemed.
