My hope is built on nothing less Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness; No merit of my own I claim But wholly lean on Jesus’ name. LSB 575
If you are like most people, during these weeks leading up to the celebration of Christmas, you have a lot of preparing to do. When we think about the preparations that need to be made, the list of presents to be bought, cards to be mailed, and special events to attend is almost dizzying! We might be surprised to find in today’s Gospel reading that John the Baptist highlights the importance of preparing. However, the preparations John has in mind may not be the same ones on the forefront of our minds this time of year. Fulfilling Isaiah’s prophecy, John’s voice cries out “Prepare the way of the Lord; make His paths straight” (Matthew 3:3). John’s call to prepare is a call to repent. During this Advent, we ask that the Lord fulfill this essential preparation of repentance in our lives, as He turns our hearts away from sin to our Savior.
Then cleansed be ev’ry life from sin;
Make straight the way for God within,
And let us all our hearts prepare
