OUR THEME FOR 2020
(Part 22)

DESTINED LIKE JOHN


December 19, 2019
Today’s gospel: Luke 1:5-25


When Zechariah entered the sanctuary of the Lord in his priestly service, the angel Gabriel appeared to him. Gabriel told him, “Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall name him John.” (v.13b). He was to become John the Baptist, who prepared the way for Jesus. He was destined to “be great in the sight of the Lord” (v.15a), because he had a great task ahead of him.

We too as Missionary Families of Christ, founded on the Rock that is Christ, are destined for greatness. We are to help prepare for the second coming of Jesus. We look at what God was doing for John and in faith must know what God is doing for us. What was John destined to be and to do?

First, “he will be filled with the holy Spirit even from his mother’s womb” (v.15c). Divine anointing is according to the eternal plan of God. From our mother’s womb, and even before we were conceived in the womb, we were already conceived in the mind of God. We as MFC are to be “of Christ.” We are to live in him and for him. We are to serve him as our Lord and Master. We are to be filled with his Spirit in order that we might accomplish our divine task.

Second, “he will turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God. He will go before him in the spirit and power of Elijah to turn the hearts of fathers toward children” (v.16-17a). We as MFC are “Families.” We work to renew the family and to defend life. We strive to draw our children away and out from the seductive culture of the age. We raise them in the Lord. We strengthen the relationship between parents and children. We form the next generations of committed Christians.
