Preparations For The Lord's Coming

Preparing the way for the Lord’s coming. Luke speaks of this Advent theme from the life and ministry of John the Baptist, retelling a prophecy from Isaiah. (See Isaiah 40:3-5.) Nowadays, preparing for the Christmas season has been relegated to the mundane exercises of gifts and decorations. In the Bible, preparation meant “going through fire” (Malachi 3:3) or “coming to the Lord in repentance” (Luke 3:3). Isaiah 57:14 reminds us that we need to “remove every obstruction” so that we can build a way to God’s holy presence. 

So, what preparations are you making these next few days?
