On Wednesday I began a new series of devotions on John the Baptist. Seemed like a good person to study during Lent. John is an amazing biblical figure. He was filled with the Holy Spirit before he was born. The angel Gabriel called him "great in the eyes of the Lord". Jesus agreed saying "among those born of women there is no one greater than John".
John is a transitional figure. A bridge between the old and the new. A good person to study in this season of Lent. A time that presents us with opportunities to let go of the old and embrace the new. To clear the road of past obstacles. To prepare the way to find God in a new way in a new season.
