Thunder in the Desert
John the Baptist was an influencer. He made a way for others to find their way to the Messiah. He was unconventional and perhaps a bit eccentric. And in the Message Bible translation he describes himself as “thunder in the desert”. Thunder is loud, powerful and rocks the area in which it rumbles. In other words, it makes an impact and a sound that is unmistakable. John may not have been the most eloquent or best dressed, but he knew that he would make a noise that would change the world.
I would be very happy today to be referred to as “thunder in the desert”; to make a way for others to know Christ and make Him Lord of their lives. Tell me something today about you. How would you describe yourself?
