Into the Neighborhood, part 2: Road Construction

John the Baptist, as the one announcing the coming of the King, was the voice calling out in the desert, “Prepare the way for the Lord.” Making the path straight and bringing the high places low didn’t involve heavy machinery even then. John proclaimed a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins, a turning of the heart away from the former, and told people to live that out, to share what they had and to not take advantage of others. What would the road construction look like in your neighborhood to make it ready for the King?

From Series: " Into the Neighborhood "

The season of Advent looks forward to the coming kingdom, looking back and celebrating it’s coming in the person and work of the promised and prophesied Messiah, recognizing His kingdom come today in the Church (His body on Earth), and looking forward to Christ’s second coming the ultimate coming of the kingdom. This year, we’re highlighting the fact that as we have been following Jesus all year, we follow Him into our neighborhoods. We are the body of Christ on Earth today, and we are the disciples, those preparing, those proclaiming, and those sent to love. Advent is a season of anticipation, preparation, and even revelation for those who don’t know how or when He is coming. The ultimate goal is that each listener will take up the call to live incarnationally, to be Jesus’ representatives to their friends, neighbors, and family, to connect more people to life in Jesus.
