Prepare the way of the Lord. (Luke 3:4
In much the same way, we need to prepare our hearts in order to receive God's word. The Bible says that before Jesus' birth, John the Baptist went around preaching to the people and preparing them for Jesus. They needed to be ready to listen to Jesus and follow Him and trust Him. So John traveled all over telling people about Jesus and all the things He would do and say. In this way, John prepared the people's hearts for Jesus. By reading our Bible, praying, and going to church, we are preparing our hearts for God's love.
Loving God, help me today to prepare my heart to receive your love. In Jesus' name, Amen.
