In the sermon text for this Lord’s Day, Elizabeth gave birth to John the Baptist. When she and her husband confirmed that their son’s name was John, Zachariah immediately regained his ability to speak. The crowd that had gathered to celebrate the circumcision of John was amazed and wondered what sort of man John would become.
A subtle them undergirds the story. It is grace. The theme of grace will unify the elements of the worship service.
