An Angel Promises the Birth of John to Zacharias II
Topic: John the Baptist

And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years. And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest’s office before God in the order of his course, According to the custom of the priest’s office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord. (Luke 1:7-9 KJV)

As we continue to study on the birth of John the Baptist, we note another thing about his parents. Zacharias and Elisabeth were advanced their ages. What thru can do in their old ages? I’d know when the people would reach 65, it is the time for retirement.

As we read today’s passage, we read that Elisabeth and Zacharias were still in labor. They might feel tire, but they had God in their lives. We will see how this couple received a child from God. I think that believers in Christ should keep working for God until their time to be with Him.

It is interesting that there is a retirement plan for the young adults; even they haven’t experienced full adult lives. We see there is a life insurance plan for toddlers. Having a retirement plan is not against God’s will, but we should be kept working for Him until He’d call us top enter our eternal home.
