  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Luke 7:24-30)
John is the very last and greatest of the prophets of the old covenant. He fulfilled the necessary task of all the prophets to be fingers spotting to Christ, God's Anointed Son and Messiah. Jesus says that John the Baptist was more than a prophet. Because he finished the cycle of prophets starts by Elijah. What the prophets had cautiously searched for and angels longed to see, now came to conclusion as John made the way ready for the coming of the Messiah, God's Anointed Son, the Lord Jesus. With John the Baptist, the Holy Spirit starts the reinstatement to the human race of the "divine likeness", heralding what would be achieved with and in the Lord Jesus. John's baptism was for regretting - turning away from sin and taking on a new approach of life according to God's word. Our baptism in Jesus Christ by water and the Spirit consequences in a new birth and entry into God's kingdom as his dearly loved sons and daughters. Jesus is ready to give us the fire of his Spirit that we may give out the joy and truth of the gospel to a world in anxiously need of God's light and truth. His word has power to alter and transform our lives that we may be lights spotting others to Christ. Like John the Baptist, we too are called to give witness to the light and truth of Jesus Christ. Do we point others to Jesus in the way we live, work, and speak?
