Day 277

Today’s Reading – Matthew 3, Mark 1, and Luke 3

Prepare the way for the Lord; make his paths straight.  Luke 3:4b CEB

It won’t be long before the the snow plows will be needed to clear the roads.

Driving or walking is no fun when you can’t make out the path.

I once drove off the road and into a snow drift because I couldn’t find the road.

I once got lost hiking because the trail markings were unclear.

That is the message of John the Baptist.

Clear the path.

Make a way.

The Promised one is coming your way.

Clear the path.

Mark the way.

Make it easy for Him to find you.

Another way to look at . . .

The path from you to God was cleared by the work of Christ . . .

What have you done to keep it clear?


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
