One who is more powerful than I is coming; I am not worthy to untie the thong of his sandals. - Luke 3:16
John’s great gift is his total clarity. He knows exactly who he is and he knows the One of whom he speaks. There is no false humility in his words. He himself is not the total answer and he directs us to look to Him who is. As we pray to understand Advent more clearly we realize that Jesus is coming to fulfill no human dreams of grandeur but to do the will of God.
With what truth do we need to wrestle today so that Christ might come into our lives with all honesty?
