Zechariah’s prophesy, answered a crucial question, ‘What will this child become?’ John was the prophet who prepared the way of the Lord. On Christmas Eve, we may have last minute preparations. While all of this is done, there is a greater preparation expected of us; as John the Baptist prepared the way for Christ, we are called to share the knowledge of salvation in preparation for Christ’s second coming. How do we do this?
“Take the word of God with you as you go.
Take the seeds of God’s word and make them grow.
Take the peace of God as you go.
Take the seeds of God’s peace and make them grow.
Take the joy of God as you go.
Take the seeds of God’s joy and make them grow.
Take the love of God as you go.
Take the seeds of God’s love and make them grow.” (J. Harrison)
Prayer: Abba Father, help me share the message of hope that I may bring light to others at this holy time. Amen.
