1. Breaking the Silence
– God speaks after 400 years of silence
– God correlates this announcement through Gabriel with Malachi 4.
2. Is this Really True?
– Just like Zechariah, our initial response can often be doubt
– Make no doubt about it, Luke’s gospel was right on, declaring he had done the work; therefore, what he is writing and telling, is completely accurate. What you believe and what others have taught you is accurate!
3. How Should We Respond?
– Either we believe, or we don’t. There is no middle ground
– We respond in faith because:
– Silence from God does not mean inactivity in our lives
– God’s timeline for everything in your life is both right and purposeful
– God is sovereign and can do anything he wants!
