The Whole Story: Jesus – John the Baptist

Why do some things take so long in life? Naturally, we are impatient and desire things to happen instantly. Throughout history, God takes His time in establishing His plans because He is preparing for His work. While He seems silent, He is preparing the path for His majestic work in our lives. We enter into the New Testament this weekend and will be looking at the life of John the Baptist. John the Baptist prepared the way for the Savior while people watched and waited in anticipation. He shared a message of repentance to prepare the hearts of the people to meet Jesus. Just as John the Baptist prepared the way for Christ, we also are preparing the way for His second coming. Even as we wait, God is preparing the world for His glorious return through our sharing of the gospel to those around us. We will rejoice in the waiting as we sing:

Like a bride waiting for her groom

We'll be a Church ready for You

Every heart longing for our King we sing

Even so come, Lord Jesus come
