When family or friends come to visit, we want to make preparations before their arrival. We want to make sure the house is clean and orderly, that special food is prepared, and that other people will know of their coming. The focus is on the guest and their needs.
When the prophet Isaiah wrote the words in the scripture above, he was foretelling of the role John the Baptist would have—preparing the way of the Lord. Jesus is coming again. Who is called to prepare the way? We are. It begins with our own individual cleaning and putting things in order in our heart. We are also called to help others know about the “Guest” that is coming so that they also can be prepared. This will be his last visit to the world we know. The ones prepared will see the new world that will be theirs for eternity.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank you for Jesus and pray that I can prepare my heart for his next visit as well as help others be prepared. I look forward to that wonderful day. Amem
Faith Tip: Are you ready for when Jesus comes again? If not, prepare the way for the Lord in your heart.
