Day 15: Matt 3: 11-12. Mark 1:7-8, Luke 3: 15-18 John preaches about Jesus

John has no ego in what he is about – he knows he is helping folks get their hearts ready for the main course – he is just the appetizer, but Jesus is the entrée! 

    Guided reflection:

  1. If you had been John the Baptist, would you have been able to see your place in spiritual history and focus your “disciples” away from yourself? 
  2. What are the two kinds of baptisms John announces?   Consider:  Water washes from the outside in, the spirit cleanse from the inside out!
  3. What can you do to help others prepare their hearts for Christ?

Guided prayer:

“All Wise God, help me to know my place in our spiritual history.  Where am I to be helping someone else get ready to launch their ministry?  Help me open doors for others without thinking about what is in it for me.  Amen”
