And the child grew and became strong in spirit; and he lived in the wilderness until he appeared publicly to Israel.

– Luke 1:80 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

John the Baptist lived in obscurity most of his life. We know very little of what his childhood was like; nor do we know how old John was when his elderly parents died. What we do know is that he was honed in the rigors of the wilderness until the appointed time. Do you feel alone and in the wilderness? Don’t let that make you think for a moment that God has passed you by. There comes a moment for all of us to do our part in the great story of God, even if our lives seem mundane before and after that event.
