The Voice in the Desert
It might be relevant to note three descriptions of John the Baptist in this passage of Scriptures.
How do these things relate to each one of us?
When I might be the lonely voice crying out in the desert, John reminds me that, like him, I am indeed sent by God to testify to the light, so that all might believe through me (not in me).
