PREPARE Some More…

–      Clear the way of obstacles – Like it says in Isaiah 62:10, ‘Build up the highway, take out the stones.’ How do we do that?

–      Well, first of all, think of the highway as our hearts and lives, and the stones as the distractions and sins that keep us from having a close relationship with the Lord. They block & slow down the free movement of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

–      Second of all, we need to confess & repent (turn away from & go in a new direction) from these things.

–      Isaiah 57:14 also says ‘Take the stumbling block out of the way of My people.’ (NKJV)

So, why do I bring this up?

Well the theme of PREPARE is not just about getting ready for the holidays by decorating, buying gifts, sending out Christmas cards, and the umpteen other things we do.

It is also about PREPARING our hearts to be right with the Lord. Why is that important? Well, we are ‘out of business’ and won’t be able to connect with God if our hearts are cold and distracted.

So, was there a prophet that told the people to PREPARE before Jesus came?  You betcha – stay tuned for more about that tomorrow…
