(57-66) The Birth of John the Baptist
When the angel Gabriel first told Zechariah that he would have a son and his name would be John, Zechariah doubted. Because of his unbelief, he was mute until Elizabeth gave birth. When it came time for his son to be named, Zechariah no longer had any doubt. He fully believed the words of the Lord, and as soon as he could speak again, he immediately blessed God. Hearts full of faith will be overflowing with praise to God.
