Scripture: Matthew 17:10-13
10And the disciples asked him, "Then why do the scribes say that first Eli'jah must come?" 11He replied, "Eli'jah does come, and he is to restore all things; 12but I tell you that Eli'jah has already come, and they did not know him, but did to him whatever they pleased. So also the Son of man will suffer at their hands." 13Then the disciples understood that he was speaking to them of John the Baptist.
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
The Jews anticipated that when the Messiah would come, Elijah would appear to announce his presence. John fills the role of Elijah and making ready the way for the coming of Christ by preaching a baptism of regret and renewal. As watchful servants, we too must prepare for the Lord's coming again by turning away from sin and from all that would keep us from pursuing his will. Are we eager to do God's will and are we prepared to meet the Lord Jesus when he returns in glory? Loving Infant Jesus, stir my zeal for your righteousness and for your kingdom. Free us from complacency and from compromising with the ways of sin and worldliness that we may be wholeheartedly devoted to you and to your kingdom.
