The people asked John, “Who are you?” And he said, “I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, make straight the way of the Lord.”
John identifies himself as a voice – a spokesperson – who speaks on behalf o another. Would that all of our lives we could be such a voice.
Lord God, at times our world is much like a wilderness, complex and confusing. Give us clarity of heart that we may help others find their way home to you.
