Read Luke 1:17b “…to make ready for the Lord a people prepared.”
God desired for his people, us, to be prepared internally (make ready) and externally (prepared) for the coming of Salvation—Jesus.
In the coming weeks, ask
What is the Spirit doing in you to ready you internally for the Lord?
What is the Spirit doing in you to prepare you externally for the Lord?
Ask God to show you any places of resistance, rebellion, or apathy to his preparations.
How can you work with the Lord to ready and prepare his people for the arrival of Jesus?
