Week 26, Day 3
June 29, 2022
Scripture: Luke 1
“to shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace.”” (Luke 1:79)
There is eager anticipation surrounding the birth of John the Baptist. God is awakening people to the call out of darkness and into the light. He will use John in a miraculous way to draw people out of death and into life. He will tell them of the coming Lord, and call people to repentance and life in the Kingdom of God.
As I weigh the significance of John the Baptist’s ministry today, I think it’s important that we continue his ministry still. We point people to the arrival of Christ as well. We anticipate that our king will return and right the wrongs of the world. As John will make paths straight, we too align our hearts to God and embrace our call to “shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace.”
