John the Baptist was born into the world with a mission. He would be the one who would use his voice to prepare the way of the Lord (Luke 1:57-66, 80). He would teach the people that they were not to be submissive servants to those who would tell them what to think or that they didn’t know what they wanted for themselves. In John’s time, there were those who believed they were in charge and would dictate to the people what was best for them.
Here we are on this first Sunday of summer, remembering the birth of John the Baptist, wanting to believe we all have a voice worth finding, and then believing God can use our voice to tell the good news that Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. You can find your voice, and we as God’s people can find our voice, and in the finding, in being who God created us to be, find that God has a purpose for us that just might make this world more like what God created it to be. Together, let’s find our voice to God’s greater glory.
