Saturday December 22nd, Matthew 11: 11 I tell you that no one ever born on this earth is greater than John the Baptist. But whoever is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than John. There were miraculous births bringing spirit filled leaders to the children of God and John was the last of the Old Testament line. Zac and Elizabeth, John’s parents were too old or barren to have children, as were Sarah and Hannah before them. John’s calling was to introduce something new. Again a miraculous birth, this one from the too young and never have been side of the spectrum. John’s greatness was to bring an end to what was and to usher in what will be. What will be, and what is, is salvation for all of creation, including ourselves. Welcome to the Advent week of Joy.
