MORNINGTIME 3966by Benjamin Munsell on March 14, 2022
In those days came John the Baptist, PREACHING IN THE WILDERNESS of Judaea, And SAYING, REPENT ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. And the same John had HIS RAIMENT OF CAMEL'S HAIR, AND A LEATHERN GIRDLE about his loins; AND his meat was LOCUSTS AND WILD HONEY. THEN WENT OUT to him Jerusalem, and ALL Judaea, and all the region round ABOUT JORDAN, Matthew 3:1-5. Yup, here we go again, some nut job running around the desert yelling about repentance, wearing weird clothes and eating strictly organic food, he's one for the record books. Let's go check him out and see what kind of game he's playing. I'll give him this, he talks different than anyone else we've ever heard. They say getting shoved underwater will change a person, my clothes need washing anyway so let's see what happens. Wow, I do feel better, my hair is clean, and I got touched by some holy guy, so they say. Ya, that was different, are there anymore weirdos like him running around? This sure breaks the monotony of life around here. Thanks God, that was a rush. OK, enough sarcasm, and yet it's all true. Many in church today come for these and many other reasons. Some pew sitters have learned how to play the part of "believer" to impress their friends. Some come to pick apart every fault of the Pastor and his family. Some are just passing time until the game starts. Some sinners look "saved" and some Truly Saved still look like sinners. (It's OK, the Lord isn't done with them yet, a Christian still under construction). Compared to the world, John, Christ and the Disciples truly ARE weirdos WHO CAN PREACH, TEACH AND ENCOURAGE YOU RIGHT STRAIGHT INTO HEAVEN for a Family Reunion like you've never imagined. Answer Christ's Call to come unto Him, Repent of your sins, let Him change your ways, (are your ways working?) and forever, Be Blessed.
