Birth of John


Luke 1: 62-66: "So they motioned to his father to find out what he wanted him to be called. He asked for a writing tablet and wrote: HIS NAME IS JOHN. And they were all amazed. Immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue [set free], and he began to speak, praising God. Fear came on all those who lived around them, and all these things were being talked about throughout the hill country of Judea. All who heard about [him] took [it] to heart, saying, "What then will this child become?" For, indeed, the Lord's hand was with him."

"Indeed, the Lord's hand was with John." These last seven words are written prophetically and factually. The people were amazed at what God had done with the family and later with John himself. This was definitely a special person.

In this season, as we read this passage, let us be reminded that God has a plan for each of our lives. It may not be as spectacular as John's - but He has a plan. And part of that plan is to be a forerunner of Jesus to friends, family and acquaintances that we cross paths with. As today's forerunner, we need to introduce others to Jesus, and live such a life that they will be seeking to know Him.

So -- get out there and forerun!
