Mark 1, Blog Through the Bible Project
1 The beginning of the good news about Jesus the Messiah,[a] the Son of God, 2 as it is written in Isaiah the prophet:
“I will send my messenger ahead of you,
who will prepare your way”—
3 “a voice of one calling in the wilderness,
‘Prepare the way for the Lord,
make straight paths for him.’”
What does it take for you to make straight paths for the Lord?
These are some things which help me clear a pathway for God
2 Brutal honesty about where I really am, what I am really preoccupied about.
3 Prayer, a beseeching for aerial support in my hour of conflict and trouble.
4 Limiting busyness. Being intense and highly strung, I try and limit social things to two a week, maybe three. More than that, I don’t enjoy them, and it does effect my inner dialogue with Christ.
5 Scripture, which introduces fresh ideas, insight and conviction into the petri dish of my thoughts.
6 Most of all, repentance helps me create a straight path for God to enter my soul.
