The Call to Prepare The Way - Matthew 3:1-3
What a privilege it is to be the forerunner of Christ for that is exactly what the church is in these last days. Just as John the Baptist was the forerunner of Jesus when He came to earth the first time, so Christians are to be the forerunners of Christ when He comes back at the second coming.
Our text says “In those days” just like 2 Tim. 3:1 says the church will “in the last days” see perilous times come. John knew that he was living in the last days of Israel just as we might see that we are living in the last days of the church age.
And its interesting to me that it was a baptizer who preached repentance that prepared Israel to see Jesus and it is that same message that is still being preaching today and then just as John did, baptized those who were willing to identify with the repentant.
