And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High... - Luke 1:76

What a scene! A man no longer young is holding new born proof of answered prayer. This moment ties together the two testaments of the Bible. John will be the last of the great line of those prophets who were called to be the conscience of Israel. He will also become the forerunner of the Messiah.

If the word “prophet” means messenger, we are each called to be prophets where we live and work. How might a stranger read each of us today? Let us pray to be worthy messengers.
