Heart Thermometer

"And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying:
'Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, For He has visited us and accomplished redemption for His people, 
And has raised up a horn of salvation for us 
In the house of David His servant— 
As He spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from of old—'"
Luke 1:68-70

The Holy Spirit will never direct our praise toward man, for only God is worthy of such devotion. Filled with the Holy Spirit, Zacharias' prophecy does not focus on John his son, but rather the unborn Savior. "Zacharias doesn't even know Jesus yet, but he praises Him, he loves Him, and he is passionate about Jesus. We know so much more about Jesus than Zacharias does, so what can excuse the coldness of our hearts?" -- David Guzik. If we don't feel moved to worship Jesus Christ -- if we have no passion for Him -- then it's time we check the temperature of our hearts.
