Watch the video:
“Even now the ax is lying at the root of the trees…” And the crowds asked him, "What then should we do?” (Luke Chapter 3)
Do they really mean they don’t know what they should do? The Law and the Prophets have been drilling ‘what they should do’ for generations. Are they not paying attention? What did they miss? Who’s not doing their jobs? As has been the usual pattern throughout the history of Israel, God is going to need to step in again, and make things right, again.
What will happen now? What will God require of them? I’ll give you a hint, “Rejoice!” “Again, and again I say Rejoice!” When we have received the greatest gift imaginable, what do we do? We worship and give thanks to God in joy and praise TOGETHER!
