Scripture: Malachi 3:1-4; Luke 3:1-18
Today’s Gospel Lesson is a story of John the Baptist – a fiery preacher who told the people to get ready for Jesus to show up. John didn’t pull any punches – he told the people that God was angry about sin, evil, violence, and more. Jesus comes to drive out the world’s darkness and replace it with God’s own light. John challenges us – and calls us to make our lives worthy of Jesus. Are you ready to welcome Jesus into our world by living a life that reflects the light of his love and stands up against the powers of darkness?
