4 as it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet,
“The voice of one crying in the wilderness,
‘Make ready the way of the Lord,
Make His paths straight.
5 ‘Every ravine will be filled,
And every mountain and hill will be brought low;
The crooked will become straight,
And the rough roads smooth;
6 And all flesh will see the salvation of God.’”
Sorry you guys. Finals week. For reals. Also, for anyone wondering, my girl is A-Ok. Fractured radius. She got her cast yesterday, and is doing very well.
Down to business!
I love these verses. So filled with the Gospel. Can you imagine? Being a part of the generation to see the salvation of God? Not that it mattered to many people who met Jesus, but still.
John the Baptist had a very important job. His job was to cry out, "Make ready the way of the Lord!". But John didn't just preach the coming of the Christ. He didn't just preach the wonderful gift of salvation...he also preach repentance. He called for people to turn from sin and turn to our salvation in the flesh. But that's another post, maybe. Looking at these verses, we are seeing the promise from God, being recited and fulfilled.
