Luke 1:76 “And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High; For you will go on BEFORE THE LORD TO PREPARE HIS WAYS”
John the Baptist was the son born to Elizabeth and Zechariah. He was the last of the prophets. Jesus had this to say about John in Luke 7:28; “I say to you, among those born of women there is no one greater than John; yet he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.”.
This great man, lived alone in the desert eating only honey and bugs. He wore camel hair for clothes. Not exactly what the world would call great, right? But God, does not care about what we eat or how we dress. He looks at our hearts and John’s was a heart of gold.
People came out and saw John and listened to his message. He was there to prepare the way for Jesus. He did it by calling people to repentance, to turn from their wicked ways. He did it with humility, he had proper view of himself. He knew Jesus was coming and He was greater than John.
John reminds us to take time and prepare our hearts for Christmas. We need to think about Jesus and what He came to do for us and why He did it.. Get away from the hustle and bustle of the season and enjoy some time with Him, whom is the reason for the season.
