Advent: Repentance

John 1:19-28 NLT

December 8, 2019

People Question Who You Are

John 1:19-22 NLT


19 This was John's testimony when the Jewish leaders sent priests and Temple assistants from Jerusalem to ask John, "Who are you?" 20 He came right out and said, "I am not the Messiah."


21 "Well then, who are you?" they asked. "Are you Elijah?"


"No," he replied.


"Are you the Prophet we are expecting?"


"No."


22 "Then who are you? We need an answer for those who sent us. What do you have to say about yourself?"

Don't Allow Doubts To Deter the Message

John 1:23 NLT

Matthew 3:1-3 NLT


23 "I am a voice shouting in the wilderness, 'Clear the way for the Lord's coming!'"


1 In those days John the Baptist came to the Judean wilderness and began preaching. His message was, 2 "Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near." 3 The prophet Isaiah was speaking about John when he said,


"He is a voice shouting in the wilderness, 'Prepare the way for the Lord's coming! Clear the road for him!'"

Some Will Still Miss Him

John 1:24-28 NLT


24 Then the Pharisees who had been sent 25 asked him, "If you aren't the Messiah or Elijah or the Prophet, what right do you have to baptize?"


26 John told them, "I baptize with water, but right here in the crowd is someone you do not recognize. 27 Though his ministry follows mine, I'm not even worthy to be his slave and untie the straps of his sandal."


28 This encounter took place in Bethany, an area east of the Jordan River, where John was baptizing.
