Scripture: Luke 3:
4As is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet:
"A voice of one calling in the desert,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord,
make straight paths for him.
5Every valley shall be filled in,
every mountain and hill made low.
The crooked roads shall become straight,
the rough ways smooth.
6And all mankind will see God’s salvation.’
Observation: Get ready, Jesus is coming!
Application: As it was in the days of John, so it is now. The kingdom of heaven is at hand and it is time to repent and come to God. There is a day coming where every valley shall be filled, every mountain and hill laid low and all of mankind will see Christ coming in the air.
That is the day that we are all preparing for. That is the day that you should be prepared for, and that is the day you should tell those you love to be prepared for. Who do you know that needs God in their lives? We only have a limited amount of time. Now is the time for action, now is the time to put aside reservations and speak truth to those who need to hear it.
Don’t waist this day, or this hour. Every moment is an opportunity to make a difference for someone and help them to secure their eternal home with God.
Prayer: Lord God Almighty Jehovah,
Help me to take every opportunity to share your word and to reach out to the lost. Grant me boldness to make your love known through my actions and words. Grant me the anointing of your spirit and give me the words to speak during the opportunities that you present me with. Thank you for your love and grace. Forgive me when I fall short and help me to continue to fight the good fight of faith and finish the race that I have started.
