Change the Narrative!
“This is he of whom it is written, ‘Behold, I send my messenger before my face, who shall prepare your way before you.’”
Jesus needed His cousin St. John the Baptist! St. John was to prepare the way for the ministry of Jesus. He was a prophet, the last Prophet of the Old Testament, Jesus begins the Nee Testament with His life and ministry.
St. John’s preparation was very clear for those who could hear him. His message was revealed in all that was about him. Even the clothing he wore and the food he ate revealed a radical turn to the Divine.
To make the way to receive the Lord, we must repent of the things that block the Divine Presence in our lives!
Repentance is important and we must remove the things that keep us from receiving Jesus in our lives!
We must be St. John like in the way we live, in our total being! We may be the only ones who can bring Jesus to people.
May we be the best St. John like people, because the world is in desperate need of the peace, joy, and love that Jesus brings!
