The Messenger’s Mission

 

John the Baptist must be one of the most peculiar characters of Scripture. From Mark’s gospel we know he had a strange fashion sense, wearing clothes made out of rough camel hair; we know of his diet oddness, locusts and wild honey. Some might dismiss him as a crackpot, an oddball, or a weirdo but there was no mistaking his message: repentance and forgiveness…and the people flocked from everywhere to hear and respond to this message. In fulfilment of prophecy, God sent him as the messenger to prepare the way for his Son Jesus. John predicted that one more powerful was soon to appear. He urged listeners to prepare by repenting and offered water baptism as a sign of repentance and appeal for forgiveness. You and I continue the ministry of John the Baptist. We too can speak of the more powerful one who is to appear again. We too urge people to change their hearts and minds about God and receive forgiveness. We continue the mission of messengers sent to prepare the hearts and lives of our friends. How well do we see our role in this mission?
