Today we have the old familiar story of John the Baptist. He is the one who was called to help others get ready for Christ to come, and in his actions we find some of what we are to do during this Advent season beyond waiting. John teaches us that we can be a voice in the wilderness, prepare the way of the Lord, and welcome others; and the way that we can do these things are endless.

Christ will come when He is meant to come, however in the meantime we have much to do. Let us not only move forward in faith, but also in joy, knowing that our work is done not as a means for our salvation, but rather in response to it!

Much to Do!
