Reflections GOSPEL: John 1: 29-34

John the Baptist had the great honor of preparing the way for Jesus. Through John’s preaching and baptizing, the people’s hearts were ready for the coming of the Lamb of God. John had spent his entire life listening to God’s word. And when Jesus, the Messiah, finally came, God helped John to recognize him.

1.) Very often we get so busy and noisy that God’s voice is completely drowned out. We are not always prepared to recognize Jesus in our daily lives.

2.) What will you do to become a better listener?
