76 “You, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High God.
You will go ahead of the Lord
to prepare his road for him,
77to tell his people that they will be saved
by having their sins forgiven.
Reflection: As a prophet of God, it is John’s job to help people know God’s plan for them—and it’s a good one. God’s good news is that the coming Messiah – Jesus – will make it possible for everyone everywhere to be forgiven all their sins and have eternal salvation.
Question: Do you believe that it’s possible to have all your sins forgiven by God?
Prayer: Thank you, God, that you have made it possible for all my sins to be forgiven. Please help me to trust you. Amen.
