Know this: The Lord himself is God; he himself has made us, and we are his; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture. Psalm 100:2
Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness, . . . make your way straight before me. Psalm 5:8
How were Zechariah and Elizabeth obedient to God? Where do you need to be obedient in a way that may cause you to stand out as a Christian during Advent?
Merciful God, who sent your messengers the prophets to preach repentance and prepare the way for our salvation: Give us grace to heed their warnings and forsake our sins, that we may greet with joy the coming of Jesus Christ our Redeemer; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
