And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him, to give his people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins,
– Luke 1:76-77 (NIV)
Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible
As Zechariah was speaking to his newborn son (who would become John the Baptist) he is also speaking to us. Understanding our sin and the need for forgiveness brings us to the knowledge of salvation. This implies that we are not able to change ourselves and need help from the outside. In other words, when we realize that we are more flawed than we want to admit, but more loved than we could dream, we are positioned to experience salvation that God provides in Jesus Christ.
