Sermon Outline:

I Discipline ended

Luke 1:64 (NKJV)

64 Immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue loosed, and he spoke, praising God.

Psalm 30:5 (NKJV)

5 For His anger is but for a moment,

His favor is for life;

Weeping may endure for a night,

But joy comes in the morning.

II Praising God for His salvation

Luke 1:67–75 (NKJV)

67 Now his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying:

68 “Blessed is the Lord God of Israel,

For He has visited and redeemed His people,

69 And has raised up a horn of salvation for us

In the house of His servant David,

70 As He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets,

Who have been since the world began,

71 That we should be saved from our enemies

And from the hand of all who hate us,

72 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers

And to remember His holy covenant,

73 The oath which He swore to our father Abraham:

74 To grant us that we,

Being delivered from the hand of our enemies,

Might serve Him without fear,

75 In holiness and righteousness before Him all the days of our life.

Isaiah 64:6 (NKJV)

6 But we are all like an unclean thing,

And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags;

We all fade as a leaf,

And our iniquities, like the wind,

Have taken us away.

III Prophesying the ministry of John the Baptist

Luke 1:76 (NKJV)

76 “And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Highest;

For you will go before the face of the Lord to prepare His ways,

Christ became what we are

that He might make us what He is


Filling the world He lies in a manager!


The Son of God became the Son of Man in order that the sons of men might become the sons of God.

John Blanchard

When Jesus came to earth,

it was not his Godhood He laid aside, but His glory.
