Our DAILY GOSPEL DEVOTIONAL is the story of Jesus from Incarnation to Ascension. This is a chronology and harmony of the gospel accounts in which the ongoing narrative and doctrinal context are carefully considered. In one year we reflect on every passage of every gospel.
May God bless you as we follow the disciples on the journey through the earthly life of Jesus Christ.

Hear the voice

Matthew 3:1-6 / Mark 1:1-6 / Luke 3:1-6…

John the Baptist was a preacher. His message was “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” and his method was “a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins”. The people came to the wilderness to see him, and he looked the part of a wild man. Food and clothing were not of primary importance to him. But he was successful, his awkward look and bold approach did not stop the Voice in his message.

A lot of people are persuasive, charming, and otherwise well spoken, well learned, and perhaps even well dressed. However, you could have just gone through a car wreck, just got back from heart surgery, or just haven’t slept much in days, and God can still use you right there in your wilderness, ragged but ready. When you speak for Christ, what counts is not what you wear or where you eat, but the truth of what you say. The power of the Voice is present in your witness, you can speak the truth and be ready when God calls (1 Peter 3:15).

If you go all out for God, you will have what you need, and you will be successful. Now, you may not look like it to the spiritually blind in your world, but your world will watch, and some will learn, and live. Your voice gives voice to THE Voice.

One day we will all hear that Voice that the Scriptures say is like the roar of many waters (Revelation 1:15), and you will either hear “well done, good and faithful servant”, or “depart from me, worker of iniquity”. One thing is for certain, on that day you won’t be able to say, this is just a voice.
