RCN Advent Reflection #23

Advent Reflection #23
Luke 1:57-66

When the day arrived for John the Baptist to be circumcised and also named, Elizabeth said his name was to be John. When she said this, those with her protested, “but none of your relatives has that name?” But Elizabeth and Zechariah held firm.

How often, I wonder, do we miss out on what God is doing because we are not familiar with it, or it doesn’t make sense to us? In John, God was doing something new. God was doing a lot that was new, in fact.

What is God doing that is new in your life? How might the unexpected and even strange things in your life be welcomed as something new that God is doing?

Come Lord Jesus. Do something new in our lives.
