Use Your Voice

Luke 1
    59 On the eighth day they came to circum- cise the child, and they were going to name him after his father Zechariah, 60 but his mother spoke up and said, “No! He is to be called John.”
    61 They said to her, “There is no one among your relatives who has that name.”
    62 Then they made signs to his father, to find out what he would like to name the child. 63 He asked for a writing tablet, and to everyone’s astonishment he wrote, “His name is John.” 64 Immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue was loosed, and he began to speak, praising God. 65 The neighbors were all filled with awe, and throughout the hill country of Judea people were talking about all these things. 66 Everyone who heard this wondered about it, asking, “What then is this child going to be?” For the Lord’s hand was with him.

That's part of the scripture reading for this coming Sunday at Crossroads.

When Zechariah finally acted in obedience to the revelation that had been given to him, he was able to speak, and when he spoke he lifted up his voice in praise to God.

How do you use the voice God has given you?  Will you speak?  Will you sing?  Perhaps you will write. Perhaps you will chat online.

God calls you to repent, to believe, and then, use that voice!
