Luke 1:17 And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the parents to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous—to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.
Zechariah was a priest at a time right before the first Christmas. He and his wife had no children, but greatly desired one. He was chosen to go in and burn incense to God in the temple and while in there, the Angel Gabriel came to him. Gabriel told him that his prayers have been heard and answered. Zechariah and his wife were going to have a child and were to name him John. John would be a special person. God will use to him to prepare the way for Jesus to come.
Zechariah did not believe Gabriel, basically saying that it would be impossible because of their age. Gabriel, did not like to be questioned and shut Zechariah’s mouth up and John was born.
Zechariah showed little faith and trust in the words Gabriel told him. Christmas is a time to trust in the Word of God and to believe the wonders of God! Believe in the Christmas story.
