And so John Came

Today's revelation comes from Mark 1:1-4

The beginning of the gospel about Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
It is written in Isaiah the prophet: "I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way"— "a voice of one calling in the desert, 'Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.' " And so John came...

If only we could all exercise faith like John the Baptist. Whilst we're all searching for security from what we see before us, John heads to a desert, a place where there's really nothing to see, and probably not much set before you in the natural that's worth putting your faith in. But because it is written; 'And so John came...'.
John had no time to consider what might be set before his eyes, because a word spoken 400 years earlier had already cemented his cause.

And so John came.
