Matthew 3:1-12

When receiving great people who have influence e.g The President, lots of preparations are required. When an event is about to happen for someone significant preparations are never ignored. This is the case for Christ Jesus our savior. We have to be prepared for His reception in our lives and also His second coming.

What can we do to receive Christ Jesus?

TURN AWAY from your wickedness and turn to the Lord. Things that you have done wrong you have the opportunity now to turn to God-Matt.11:28

- Be warned of the wrath- v.7

- Bear fruits worthy of repentance- v.8

- No one to stand on your behalf-v.9

- Punishment is real-v.10

Make a decision to run away from even the potential sin and purpose for God. KEEP AWAY from sinful nature and push for righteousness.

If John the Baptist was able to change the world in day what about our Lord Jesus Christ? TRUST Him with your life and you will never regret it.

Call for action

You may have been through a lot and you know itโ€™s sinful, purpose to repent and write down some of those things. Tear down that list and in the same way determine in your life that you are not turning back. LET CHRIST REIGN IN YOUR HEART.
