Luke 1:23 KJV
And it came to pass, that, as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house.
What an amazing testimony has Zacharias.
First. He was doing his ministry according to the order for the priesthood.
He did HIS job.
Second, he did it for years with a broken heart.
Though he and his wife were well-striken in years, the desire and prayer for a child had not diminished. Still, he kept on.
Third, the Bible says that even after the two very BIG events of
• a promised child and
• his speech being taken from him
he still stayed and finished his days of ministry before returning home.
Lord, give us people like this today!
