Life’s journey is filled with highs and lows ….. struggles and curveballs! Before Jesus began His ministry on earth ….. his cousin John was sent to ‘Prepare the way’!
“A voice of one calling in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.
Every valley shall be filled in, every mountain and hill made low.
The crooked roads shall become straight, the rough ways smooth.
And all people will see God’s salvation.’” Luke 3:4-6
During His time on earth ….. Jesus taught and exposed the attitudes that stood in the way of people coming into Gods kingdom. The valleys of despair ….. hopelessness ….. indecision. The mountains of pride ….. intimidation ….. opposition. The crooked roads of lies ….. deception ….. manipulation. The rough ways of hardship ….. poverty ….. sickness etc. He came to show us that ….. when we surrender everything to Him ….. He will lead us to our destination.
