Luke 1:67-7567 His father Zechariah was filled with the Holy Spirit and prophesied: 68 “Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, because he has come to his people and redeemed them. 69 He has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David 70 (as he said through his holy prophets of long ago), 71 salvation from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us— 72 to show mercy to our ancestors and to remember his holy covenant, 73 the oath he swore to our father Abraham: 74 to rescue us from the hand of our enemies, and to enable us to serve him without fear 75 in holiness and righteousness before him all our days.
You have come to save your people and redeem them. Thank you, LORD, for the salvation-rescue that Christmas proclaims. You arrive in our world to fulfil ancient promises that uncover your unchanging commitment to bless. I praise you that through Jesus I can live an everyday life that’s touched by your holiness and goodness, free from fear. May that be so today!
