‘Tis the Season of Hope
December 3, 2016
John the Baptist was the designated messenger of a direct message: Repent, because the one who will change your life is coming, and you don’t want your current baggage to weigh you down. John had been giving that message since he was in utero, leaping in the presence of a pregnant Mary. John preached hope: hope of redemption and hope of salvation. The coming of Christ was the hope of the world.
