His father Zechariah was filled with the Holy Spirit and prophesied: “Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, because he has come to his people and redeemed them. He has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David

– Luke 1:67-69 (NIV)

Today’s commentary

Zechariah did not seem very unique. He was not a high priest in the city of Jerusalem. To the contrary, Zechariah probably came from a small rural synagogue in Israel. Yet God chose this country rabbi to reveal the coming of Christ. These were his first words after an angel silenced him for his unbelief, and the loosing of Zechariah’s tongue was a sign to those around him of an ordinary person being used in an extraordinary way. God is not limited to position and title. He will use people from any background.
