Luke 1: An Incomplete Faith

This chapter is a reminder that when God works He does so in unexpected times, in unpredictable ways, and through unlikely people.  Zacharias and Elisabeth were not the most eligible parents.  If you were looking to place a child in a home you would not likely have chosen them.  They were old, barren, poor, and had imperfect faith.  But “with God nothing shall be impossible.” (v. 37)

I love that God chose Zacharias as the father of John the Baptist even though his faith was imperfect. Zacharias still needed to grow, so God capped off a lifetime of service and godly living with a 9 month crash course in silence.

God doesn’t wait till we’re perfect to use us. He works THROUGH the people He knows He can work IN.  And the work He has for us to do is part of the work He does for us.
