Meet, Know, Grow in JESUS AT JUMC

The Way (Matthew 3:1-12)

“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”  This is the one of whom the prophet Isaiah spoke when he said, “The voice of one crying out in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord; make his paths straight.’”       (Matthew 3:2-3)

Sometime in our lives we wonder if we are on the right track.  When John the Baptist told people to repent, he was telling people that they were not quite on the right track, and so advised to turn their way of life to a different direction, which is the direction towards the kingdom of heaven.  Since the destination determines which way(s) to go, John the Baptist was getting people’s attention to their ever-wanted destination, the kingdom of heaven.  What’s interesting about his way of redirecting people’s attention to the destination was to say that someone from the destination was “coming” to the people to lead them to the way to the destination.  Guess who that person was?

Come and join us in our Jonesville UMC Second Advent Service at 9:30am or meet us in the streaming service at Jonesvilleumc.org at the same time.

Blessings,                                                                                                                                                                                      Youngjae
