Advent: A Voice Crying Out

ADVENT – the Time Between

A voice crying out…

A powerful voice,
God’s selected choice,
Entrusted to introduce
The Lamb of God.

Intense we would say,
The life he displayed,
Abstaining from all we hold dear,
Obedient acts with an open ear-
Introduced the great I Am.

Prepared the way
For the great I Am,
By all acclaimed;
Yet John would fall,
Under wicked sword be slain.

As I follow the great I Am,
A disturbing question remains:
Will I like John be willing to die
As Jesus only I proclaim?

Read: Isaiah 40:1-11; John 1:6-12, 23.

John replied, “I am a voice crying out in the wilderness,: ‘Make the Lord’s path straight,’ just as the prophet Isaiah said.”

Matthew 11:11- Jesus said, “I assure you that no one who has ever been born is greater than John the Baptist…”
