Read Mark 1: http://bible.oremus.org/?ql=482994338
The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
Mark 1:3 KJV
I picked this verse because these are powerful words from John the Baptist that model our role in God’s kingdom as followers of Jesus Christ.
I want to prepare the way of the Lord for others. I want to be less of an obstacle for the faith of others, and more of a conduit for their faith by displaying the fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, and self control.
Lord, help me to be a conduit for the faith of others. Use me to lead friends and family to Jesus. Forgive me for the ways that I have been an obstacle to the faith of others. In your name I pray. Amen.
