Advent Sermon Series – Week 2

“GET READY”

John the Baptist was about making the way of our heart and spiritual life clear for Jesus.  What does that mean?  What do we need to repent of?  If we were to put up some signs on our path to Jesus what might we encounter?  Slow traffic ahead, Under construction, Dangerous intersection, Speed Limit . . . what would Jesus want our signs to read?
