God sent John the Baptist into the desert to prepare the way for the life-changing message of Jesus. John the Baptist’s story is your story too. In the same way John made the way for Jesus, God is calling you to prepare the hearts of those who are hurting and broken to receive the love of Jesus. We are the bearers of the good news that Jesus changes the dying to living, the broken to beautiful and the lonely to loved. If you are a follower of Jesus, then you have everything you need to point people to him. Like he did with John the Baptist, God is asking you to go to the wasteland of people’s lives because he is ready to pass through there. Begin to believe, then be the radical who points those in the desert toward the fulfilling love of Jesus.
