Second Week of Advent
On this the Second Sunday of Advent, we are invited to reflect upon the role of John the Baptist, who prepared the way for Jesus and the salvation that he would bring to us.
John the Baptist was the messenger that God chose to bring this good news to His people. John traveled around in the desert preaching that people should repent of their sins and turn to God. When people listening to John the Baptist confessed their sins, he baptized them in the Jordan River.
John the Baptist was very popular and had a great following, but he always told the people about Jesus. "Someone is coming soon who is greater than I am," he said. "He is so much greater that I am not even worthy to stoop down and untie the straps on His sandals."
It’s been 2,000 years since God sent His Son, but God still needs messengers to spread the news. This year, as we celebrate our Savior's birth, will you be God's messenger to share the good news with others?
