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
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Zechariah was not a special guy. We know that he was not a high priest in Jerusalem. He probably came from a small rural synagogue in Israel, yet God chose this country rabbi to reveal God’s purposes. Zechariah’s prophecy (the first words he spoke after an angel made him deaf and dumb) was a sign that God uses ordinary people to glorify His name. God is looking for the Zechariah’s of our day to fill them with His Holy Spirit and use them in amazing ways.
