A Note to My Readers -
I've decided to remove my Sunday posts from the weekly cycle. Although I hope they've been of benefit to some of you, they are necessarily secondary to my regular work of sermon preparation each week. I've found that having that extra post to write simply added to the burden of my work. For those readers who would still like access to my weekly work in Scriptural exposition, I would ask them to access the podcasts of my sermons (available through a link in the sidebar), since that remains the primary form of my Bible teaching each week.

The Evangeliad (1:68-76)

Then old Zechariah, Spirit-filled, said:
"May our God be blessed, for He has led
His people Israel with greatest care,
And has wrought salvation for those He bears!

Yes, just as He spoke through prophets of old,
He has raised up for us, from David's fold,
The horn of salvation, mighty and true,
From enemies rescuing me and you.

His mercy remains from our fathers' days,
For faithful is He in all of His ways:
Upholding the holy covenants old--
The blessings He spoke, the promises told.

For to Abraham's seed He swore that He
Would a mighty and glorious Savior be,
So that we might serve him all of our days
In justice and peace and unending praise.
