The word of God came to John son of Zechariah in the wilderness. - Luke 3:2
More than two decades are compressed into that one sentence. When does John become aware of his destiny? How old is he when he says farewell to loving parents and goes into the desert to find his roots? And how fitting that, in the very place where Moses and the Israelites had been formed, John finds his soul’s place too.
Let us take time this day to meet our God of the wilderness who would speak to each of us alone with nothing to distract.
