Prepare the way of the lord.
By Marco Rubio – email@example.com
Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, because he has come and has redeemed his people.
He has raised up a horn* of salvation for us in the house of his servant David (as he said through his holy prophets of long ago), salvation from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us— to show mercy to our fathers and to remember his holy covenant, the oath he swore to our father Abraham: to rescue us from the hand of our enemies, and to enable us to serve him without fear in holiness and righteousness before him all our days.
And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him, to give his people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins, because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven to shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace."
Prepare the Way of the Lord is more than decorating our homes with thousands of brilliant and colorful lights. Prepare the Way of the Lord is more than shopping for hundred of gifts to show the people how much we love them. Prepare the Way of the Lord is more than lighting a candle in a wreath every Sunday. And Prepare the Way of the Lord is more than saying Merry Christmas, instead of Happy Holidays.
Hope that we can be all that God wants us to be – to be as big as we can dream… be blessed and a blessing to those around us… bringing us as close to God as imaginable.
This is a war inside you. But if you invest just 10% of this same energy, you can fight your way into pace. Your personal world will change from a hell, to a paradise. Make the place where you are into heaven, for you and all those around you.
“If God is with you, who could possibly be against you?”
You are God’s original and priceless creation. You are God’s temple and God is in you. Discover God inside of you and in all others… discover God’s great creativeness.
And then, come to the church and share your God and share yourself with others, especially with those who have not yet discovered the Joy of God. This Joy is found inside themselves and inside of others, and this is the greatest of all joys.
This is the most important thing we can do for God and this is what God wants and expect from us – this is better than a simple prayer before the Christmas meal.
When you have cleaned up these paths (when you Prepared the Way of the Lord) to your heart with these actions, Jesus (the Birthday Boy) will be with you and you will receive and give countless blessings… not only during the Christmas season or in the Christmas day, but forever, and ever, and ever, Amen!
