Thunder in the Desert

John 1:19-28 (MSG)  

Thunder in the Desert-

19 When Jews from Jerusalem sent a group of priests and officials to ask John who he was, he was completely honest. 20 He didn’t evade the question. He told the plain truth: “I am not the Messiah.” 21 They pressed him, “Who, then? Elijah?” “I am not.” “The Prophet?” “No.” 22 Exasperated, they said, “Who, then? We need an answer for those who sent us. Tell us something—anything!—about yourself.” 23 “I’m thunder in the desert: ‘Make the road straight for God!’ I’m doing what the prophet Isaiah preached.” 24 Those sent to question him were from the Pharisee party. 25 Now they had a question of their own: “If you’re neither the Messiah, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet, why do you baptize?” 26 John answered, “I only baptize using water. A person you don’t recognize has taken his stand in your midst. 27 He comes after me, but he is not in second place to me. I’m not even worthy to hold his coat for him.” 28 These conversations took place in Bethany on the other side of the Jordan, where John was baptizing at the time.

SPECIAL NOTE:

I’ve missed you and I’m sorry I have been away! 

If you have been checking my blog, you know I have been away for a while first it started with web browser and Internet Explorer problems and then it was just difficult for me to get caught up and back on track.  But, I have not been completely out of the loop as I have been recording weekly devotionals that you can tune into by clicking here.
 
As a matter of fact I will archive the last three week’s audio devotionals here, so check back soon!
 
Now without further ado; continue to delve into this study!
