Preparing Ourselves - Matthew 3: 1-12
Key Verses- 3 3 This is he who was spoken of through the prophet Isaiah:
“A voice of one calling in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord,make straight paths for him.’”
This week we continue the theme of preparing ourselves for the celebration of the birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ.
In our reading this week, John the Baptist urges us to prepare the way for the Lord’s coming. As Christmas approaches we prepare our homes by decorating our Christmas trees and with all the other items that make it look beautiful. The thing is we need to prepare ourselves as well so we can be ready for our King. Matthew 3:1 In those days John the Baptist came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea 2 and saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” We all have a part to play in this world God has given us, and we don’t get to sit by and just look on. So let us think about the true meaning of Christmas and how we can prepare our hearts and minds so they can be beautiful for the coming of our King.
Have blessed week
