Read Luke 3:1-6


Read Luke 3:1-6

3 It was the fifteenth year of the rule of Emperor Tiberius; Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea, Herod was ruler of Galilee, and his brother Philip was ruler of the territory of Iturea and Trachonitis; Lysanias was ruler of Abilene, 2 and Annas and Caiaphas were High Priests. At that time the word of God came to John son of Zechariah in the desert. 3 So John went throughout the whole territory of the Jordan River, preaching, “Turn away from your sins and be baptized, and God will forgive your sins.” 4 As it is written in the book of the prophet Isaiah:

“Someone is shouting in the desert:
   ‘Get the road ready for the Lord;
   make a straight path for him to travel!
5 Every valley must be filled up,
   every hill and mountain leveled off.
The winding roads must be made straight,
   and the rough paths made smooth.
6 The whole human race will see God's salvation!’”
Good News Translation (GNT)

The last verse - “The whole human race will see God’s salvation!”
We can all see Gods salvation.  We can all see Jesus’ help to save us - but will we take hold of this hope and learn to live it?


Help me to see your salvation - and live a life that testifies to your love and grace.  Amen.
