He came for one very specific purpose…to go on before the Lord, the Messiah.
Why are you here on earth?
What does God want you to do?
And then once you ask Him what He wants you to do, are you willing to?
You see, John the Baptist’s role, had an eventual outcome, and that was to turn the hearts of men and women and boys and girls.
How about you?
What do you, and to whom do you, plan to share the truths of this season to?
Father, the purpose of John the Baptist’s birth was to “go on before the Lord [Jesus] (Luke 1:17a). And with us celebrating the Your Son’s entrance into earth this Christmas season, my prayer is that we will have the opportunity to go before Him, sharing the truths of this season, and “turning the hearts of fathers…and the disobedient…” (Luke 1:17b) to You Lord.
