Walking Blamelessly, Day 2

Reading, Luke 1:5-7

Let’s begin at the beginning: not the birth of Christ, but the story of Elizabeth and Zacharias. I find it difficult to separate the birth of Christ from that of His forerunner, John the Baptist, and because Luke felt it was essential to record, we need to examine. So what exactly were Elizabeth and Zacharias doing when God came down?

I want to draw your attention to verse six. "They were both righteous in the sight of God, walking blamelessly." Interestingly, in Greek, it has the connotation that this couple carried the righteousness they had in God into their personal journey. In other words, they didn't just talk the talk; they walked the walk. In this, they were blameless, despite the disappointment of barrenness. They did not become bitter and resentful but continued following the commands of the Lord even when people around them were more than likely whispering behind their backs about a secret sin. After all, according to Deuteronomy 28:4, one of the rewards for obedience was the fruit of their womb is blessed.

How do we respond when we feel God has forgotten us despite our ongoing dedication to Him? When life disappoints us, even though we are standing on the promises of God? Do we continue steadfastly applying what we've learned to our lives and advance, or do we gripe and complain about what we feel is a slight from God? Walking blamelessly – that’s what Zacharias and Elizabeth were doing when God came down.
