“God Remembers Us in Action to Restore Our Relationship with Him in Christ神在基督裡恢復我們與祂關係的行動中記念我們“（Luke 路加福音 1:67-75）
… 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 … to show mercy to our ancestors and to remember his holy covenant, the oath he swore to our father Abraham: to rescue us from the hand of our enemies, and to enable us to serve him without fear in holiness and righteousness before him all our days.
… 主，以色列的神，是應當稱頌的，因他眷顧自己的子民，施行救贖，在他僕人大衛家中，為我們興起救恩的角，… 向我們列祖施憐憫，記念他的聖約，就是他對我們祖先亞伯拉罕所起的誓，把我們從仇敵手中救拔出來，叫我們可以坦然無懼，用聖潔公義，在他面前一生一世敬拜他。
Luke 1 tells us that after 400 years’ silence of God’s prophetic voice, God spoke again through Gabriel, Elizabeth, Mary and now Zacharias, all being related to Jesus Christ and His work. This Zacharias’ song was truly Spirit-inspired prophecy because its first focus is the unborn Jesus whom he did not even know yet. Luke 1:72-75 is Zacharias’ paraphrased version of Psalm 105:8-11 revealing to us that Jesus Christ is the horn of salvation for us showing mercy to God’s people, remembering the covenant, saving us from our enemies and enabling us to serve him without fear in holiness and righteousness before him all our days!
Prayer: God of Trinity, we might often remain in our comfort zone and tend to selectively forget you or your word or people you may care. With no knowledge of Jesus Christ Zacharias still praised Him, loved Him, and was passionate about Him. We know so much more about Jesus than Zacharias did, so what can excuse the coldness of our hearts? Forgive us and help us to remember you not only through the Holy Communion but also through our daily walk with you by worship, prayer and witness. Amen.
