  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Mark 1:1-8)
The Spirit dwelt in John and made him the forerunner of the coming Messiah. Jesus tells us that John the Baptist was above than a prophet. John was the voice of the Consoler who is expecting. He finished the cycle of prophets begun by Elijah. What the prophets had cautiously searched for and angels longed to see, now came to conclusion as John made the way set for the coming of the Messiah, God's Anointed Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. With John the Baptist, the Holy Spirit begins the restoration to the person race of the "heavenly likeness", anticipating what would be completed with and in the Lord Jesus. John's baptism was for repentance - turning away from sin and taking on a new practice of life according to God's word. Our baptism in Jesus Christ by water and the Spirit effects in a new birth and permits into God's kingdom as his much-loved sons and daughters. Jesus is prepared to give us the fire of his Spirit that we may give out the joy and truth of the gospel to a world in desperate need of God's light and truth. His word has power to transform and change our lives that we may be lights bring others to Christ. Similar to John the Baptist, we too are called to give witness to the light and truth of Jesus Christ. Do we bring others to Christ in the way you live, work, and speak?
