Zechariah and Elizabeth play important roles in the unfolding of salvation history. Each stands at the hinge of God’s plan being revealed in Jesus.

It takes a lot of patience to wait on God. What can seem like forever to us is but a moment in eternity. May we be like Zechariah.

O gracious God, make me patient. May I see Zechariah as a model of fidelity and holy waiting. You always keep your promises.
