Prepare the Way

Prepare the Way

A voice of one calling: “In the wilderness prepare the way for the LORD; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. (Isaiah 40:3 NIV)

Isaiah prophesied that the Israelites were to prepare the way for the coming Messiah.  John the Baptist quotes this verse in John 1:23 when he is questioned by the Jewish leaders.  John was preparing the hearts of the people so they would be ready for Christ.  John preached a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins (Mark 1:4).  Just as John the Baptist was preparing hearts for the Messiah we are to do the same.  We are to preach the Gospel of Christ’s soon return so that others may be ready.
