Who is wandering around in a desert?

As “I’m thunder in the desert: ‘Make the road straight for God!” John 1:23

iPad 6-13 020John the Baptist baptized those seeking repentance for their sins. Curiosity got the best of some Pharisees (who saw themselves as being “above the law”), and they approached John to find out who he was. They had three questions: (1) Are you the Messiah; (2) are you Elijah; or (3) the Prophet? John assured them he was the one preparing the way for Jesus and nothing more.

Today, in the Southwest desert, if someone is hanging out all alone, he or she might be asked these three questions: (1) What are you doing here; (2) Where are you going; and (3) Do you have proof that you are here legally?

Regardless of where you are today, if someone asks you questions about your spiritual life, how would you answer? Advent is a time well spent pondering who we are and where we are going in our faith journey. Happy traveling!

Dear Lord, show us the way so that we will not just wander around in the desert for the rest of our lives. Amen.
