Baptized with the Holy Spirit…

1:08 Mark “I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit." (NIV)

We quickly see that John the Baptizer knew that his role was to prepare hearts for the coming of Jesus. He knew that while people repented and where baptized with water, that Jesus would come to give a baptism with the Holy Spirit. We have such a baptism. We have the Holy Spirit within us. We are well equipped and well prepared to share that Spirit with others that we meet each day. Don’t miss out on that chance to share your faith!

Do what you are called upon to do…

1:03 Mark “a voice of one calling in the wilderness, 'Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.'" (NIV)

Mark makes the immediate introduction of John the Baptizer and the role which he was to play in preparing for the coming of the Messiah… preparing for the coming of Christ. We are also often called to help prepare people to meet Christ. We do that through our kind words and loving actions. Do people see that in you? Do they know that you will be faithful to show them the love of Christ in ALL that you do? Let them see that each day.

Got needs…Ask God!

4:02 James “You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God." (NIV)
