Our Text: Matt 3:3 

“For this is he who was spoken of by Isaiah saying; the voice of one crying in the wilderness: prepare the way of the Lord: make His path straight.”

Our Focus: What Do You Cry About?

I learnt something in this text I need to share with you. There is need to have what you cry about. John the Baptist cried about something. What did he cried about? Prepare the way of the Lord, make his path straight. John cried against unseriousness and roughness of lifestyle among the Jews. He shouted to the people to seek God in the right way. What a good cry he cried.

What do you cry about today? As a believer there is something your soul should cry about. Most people cry for money. I need money! Money!! Money!!! All the cry of people today is money! There is a cry that is more important than this. Let’s cry about a better society. Let’s cry about a godly leader. Let’s cry about righteousness prevailing in our country. Let’s cry against atrocities in our land! John the Baptist cried for people to make their path straight, and his cry worked. People changed from their wicked ways to the path of righteousness.

…He saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to his baptism he said to them; Brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? Matt 3:7

Therefore bear fruit worthy of repentance. 

John shouted and the people changed from their wickedness. How are you crying for something better to happen where you are?  Have you been crying out for something better to happen in Nigeria? Have you been crying out for your children to work in the way of the Lord? What do you cry about? Your personal needs? The cry that counts to God is the cry that will make our society better.

Cry out today for a better change. Say something that will make people around you better. Don’t say what will destroy the society, say what will make our society better. Let the musicians sing songs that will make our citizen better, not songs that will ruin our moral values. I pray for you today, your cry will make someone better for God.

If all you cry about his yourself, you are selfish until you say things that makes others better you are not relevant to God.

Prayer: Father let my cry produce great change in my society. Let me say things that will make people better like John the Baptist did.
