To be like Jesus 116

Today

“The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.” Isaiah 40 v3 AKJV

“He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.” John 1 v23 AKJV

“In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

And the same John had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.” Mathew 3 v1-4 AKJV

In conversation some days ago, a response to conversation came to another in the form of “times have changed”. Surely, this is true and we all know. We no longer see the man clothed in the “raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle” and that is pretty clear. The apparel of what is on the outside has taken many different forms over the centuries of time, but the adornment of what comes from the inside still lay in two characteristics clearly defined from the beginning of time.

Repentance, the word itself brings a presence of thought to ones mind when it is spoken, heard, or even read. To ‘make straight’ the way is a call to living with respect to all the precepts of the word of the Lord that has not changed.

God sent his son, because of his love for his creation of humanity. His desire for his purposes to have a pure and Holy fellowship with those who choose to follow him. It is a good life.

Lord, this day is yours. Forgive us where we have fallen short, and we thank you. Be with each one of ours today, as the task at hand they will be taking on. Be glorified this day. Amen
