I Am Second

“…it’s not about you.”

 

Zechariah

not about him

not about the baby(!)

 

Celebrating
someone else

 

Jesus

 

Not about John. It’s about Jesus

 

“Praise be to the Lord the God of Israel because he has come to his people and redeemed them, he has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David.”

Luke 1:68

 

Promise fulfilled


Rescue from our enemies   v74

 

His plan of reversal

His promises are kept

Responding to God’s glory

 

“And you my child will be called a prophet of the most high. For you... will go on before the Lord. To prepare the way for him.” 

Luke 1:76

 

“You, my child... will go before the Lord.
To prepare the way for him.”

 

Salvation from our enemies

Salvation from our sin

 

Not. About. Me.

All about Him
