Horn of Salvation

When Zechariah agrees to name his child John, he shows his willingness to follow God.  His speech is then restored and he breaks into praise.  Part of his praise is that God has raised up a horn of salvation.  This week, Hamilton George explains that phrase.  The horn is a symbol of eternal strength, and personal salvation is part of God's eternal covenant to rebuild a relationship with the world.  Our response to true salvation is to continually draw closer to God in unity with the church body.
