Who…Not How 12/8/15

Matthew 3:1-2  In those days John the Baptist appeared in the desert of Judea announcing, 2 “Change your hearts and lives! Here comes the kingdom of heaven!”  CEB

Matthew records John’s challenge, “Change your hearts and lives!”  Our society seems to get that.  We support a world-wide self-help industry.  We’re not stupid…we know we can be better…we want to be better…we strive to be better but…how?   Matthew records John’s challenge to decide is it really self-help we want OR to be complete and have changed lives?

There are good self-help books available with “ten easy steps to a better you.”  John’s solution is a simple one-step plan to a complete you: Jesus. “Here comes the kingdom of heaven!”  It’s Who…Not How.
