Re:Verse passage – Mark 1:1-8 (day six)
A voice crying in the wilderness…Isaiah 40:3
Our sin got us kicked out of the garden and into the wilderness. Chaos, disorder, brokenness, and a terrible curse were chains we carried as we traversed the soul sucking terrain-wilderness.
And yet even before the beginning God planned to make a way for us to return to the promise land, and not for just a season but for all time; leading us out of the wilderness into the land of promise, righteousness forevermore.
It would take the Father-sent Son, sent into the wilderness to die and rise again, breaking the chains and forging a new path for whomever saw the wilderness for what it was and ventured to follow Him. And like the pillar of fire by night, and cloud by day, the Jesus-sent Holy Spirit would lead from the tabernacle of the human heart; testifying:
Welcome home. These are the children of God.
