Message of the Day: John the Baptist’s Mission was to Prepare the Way for Jesus!

And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Highest; for you will go before the face of the Lord to prepare His ways, to give knowledge of salvation to His people by the remission of their sins, through the tender mercy of our God, with which the Dayspring from on high has visited us.” (Luke 1:76-78, NKJV)

Zachariah’s Benedictus brings out the themes of fulfillment, deliverance from oppression, forgiveness of sins, and peaceful service to God.

When he turned his attention to his son, John, he was reminded that his son’s mission was to lead people from darkness to light through repentance of their sins. In this way he would correct the false notion of people had of the Messiah and prepare the way for them to receive him. A new era will begin. But before John could prepare others to receive the Messiah, he himself had to be prepared.
