Does all this matter?

In the fifteenth year of the rule of the emperor Tiberius—when Pontius Pilate was governor over Judea and Herod was ruler over Galilee, his brother Philip was ruler over Ituraea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias was ruler over Abilene, during the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas—God’s word came to John son of Zechariah in the wilderness. John went throughout the region of the Jordan River, calling for people to be baptized to show that they were changing their hearts and lives and wanted God to forgive their sins. This is just as it was written in the scroll of the words of Isaiah the prophet, A voice crying out in the wilderness:Prepare the way for the Lord; make his paths straight. Every valley will be filled, and every mountain and hill will be leveled. The crooked will be made straight and the rough places made smooth. All humanity will see God’s salvation.” (Luke 3:1-6, CEB)

I read this and just want to go, “blah blah blah blah…” for the first part. But all the history is important because it centers us in the time we are in. It places us at a specifi time in history and thatis importent to know.

John was srying out before Jesus was born for all os us to prepare the way of the coming savior.

Have you prepared the way?

Loving People. Loving God.
