Our Advent Series titled Advent of the King and His Kingdom continues with a second look at John the Baptist. We find him in Luke 3.7-18 baptizing people in the Jordan River and preaching what Luke calls the good news. What is this good news? Stuff like, “If you have two shirts, give one to someone who has none.” That doesn’t sound like good news, John saying that we can’t own two shirts until everyone has at least one. But John is trying to get us ready for the King to come. He’s preparing us to live in a different kind of kingdom, one defined by mercy, justice, and love.
