If you are like most people, during these weeks leading up to the celebration of Christmas, you have a lot of preparing to do. When we think about the preparations that need to be made, the list of presents to be bought, cards to be mailed, and special events to attend, it is almost dizzying! John the Baptist highlights the importance of preparing. However, the preparations John has in mind may not be the same ones on the forefront of our minds this time of year. Fulfilling Isaiah's prophecy, Johns voice cries out "Prepare the way of the Lord; make His paths straight". John's call to prepare is a call to repent. During Advent, we ask that the Lord fulfill this essential preparation of repentance in our lives, as He turns our hearts away from sin to our Savior.
Verse 2 from "On Jordan's Bank the Baptist's Cry"
Then cleansed be ev'ry life from sin;
Make straight the way for God within,
And let us all our hearts prepare
For Christ to come and enter there.
Rejoicing and Sharing Jesus' love with the community.
