Songs of Jesus – Zechariah’s Song
It’s been 45 years since I’ve been surprised on Christmas morning. When I was young, I always found where my gifts were being hidden, and as an adult, I’ve come to be so practical, I even buy and wrap my own gifts. Sad, isn’t it – to have avoided the surprises of Christmas for so long? Surprise is at the very core of the incarnation and is a theme of the Song of Zechariah that we explore today. What surprises does Zechariah sing of? Are you surprised by these things? And do you expect God to act in surprising ways in your life?
