Repentance in the Parking Lot

December 4, 2022


Such efforts, whether individual or congregational, are designed to prepare the way of the Lord, and to make his paths straight. They are attempts to build a bridge between the church and the community, just as John the Baptist built a bridge between Jesus and the people around him. “I baptize you with water for repentance,” said John, “but the one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; I am not worthy to carry his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire” (v. 11).
