John the Baptizer declared to the multitudes, “Prepare the way of the Lord, and make His paths straight,” because the long-awaited Messiah was about to be revealed. As Christians, our message should be much like John’s: Repent and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, because Jesus is returning soon. We want as many people as possible to be ready. Please open your Bible to Mark chapter one, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola begins his study of verses two through eight.
