A Bright Vision of the Future Produces Hope for the Present
God gives Zechariah a vision of the future that will stimulate the people to action. If you’re wondering what the future of the church is, Zechariah will tell you. If you’re wondering what you can be doing for God right now, Zechariah will tell you. Because God promises great things for his people, we should respond with obedience. We should view the future with faith, and serve God as we are able in the present. Let us see, then, that in this passage God shows us a bright future, and calls us to live in light of it.
