Morning Devo

I am currently reading the book of Luke. I’ve read it before but it spoke to me anew. I am amazed by the lives of the people mentioned in the first couple of chapters.

  • Elizabeth and Zacharias were known as “righteous”. It says in chapter 1 verse 6, “And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless.”
  • Mary was regarded as “highly favored (ch. 1:28)”.
  • Joseph, although not described as righteous in the book of Luke, was regarded as “a just man” in the book of Matthew (ch. 1:19).
  • “…the hand of the Lord was with him (ch. 1:66)” was mentioned of John.
  • Simeon was known as “just and devout (ch. 2:25)”.

They were all filled with the Holy Spirit. God used all of them to fulfill the prophecy about the Savior’s birth because they believed in God and were obedient to Him. They all played an important role. Today, I re-learned that God uses people who revere Him in their heart and are obedient to Him.
