On this second Sunday of Advent we remember John the Baptist and his preaching ‘Prepare the way of the Lord!’ As part of that preparation he called people to repent and be baptised.
We have as a church been looking at revival and being prepared for it to happen and how people prayed earnestly for revival to come. Wow! What incredible accounts of past revivals we have heard. One thing that’s struck me is how people have been suddenly aware of their need to repent. I was reminded some weeks back about the bible verses that call us to be “set apart, a Holy people.” Sometimes I forget how Holy God is and I’m reminded of how much I take for granted, and how privileged and honoured we are to be allowed to enter His presence in worship. Thank God for Jesus making that possible. It’s incredible that I can sometimes find it hard to enter into that place of worship when I know that even though it’s all about Him, he blesses me so much through it.
