I wrote a teaching a while ago about John the Baptist, and it demonstrated how John was preparing a way for the Lord by bringing the people to repentance. The same is true in our lives today in that repentance makes a way for the Lord’s goodness to flow in our lives.
Matthew 3:1-3, “In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.“
Through repentance, we make a way for the Lord in our lives. We open ourselves up to His goodness, mercy and blessings! The only person who has something to lose is Satan!
