as it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, saying: “The voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the LORD; Make His paths straight.  Every valley shall be filled And every mountain and hill brought low; The crooked places shall be made straight And the rough ways smooth; And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.’ ” (Luke 3:4-6)
Do you know the Boy Scout motto? 
Since 1907, Boy Scouts have been learning and living by the motto, “Be prepared!”  That’s a great motto.  In fact, it should be the motto of every person. 
The message of Scripture can be summed up as, “Be prepared!”  The Old Testament prophet, Amos warned, “Prepare to meet your God!”  (Amos 4:12).  The New Testament prophet, John the Baptist, came with the same message of urgent warning.  The prophet Isaiah centuries before said this would mark John’s ministry, “Prepare the way of the LORD,” (v.4). 
Are you prepared to meet God?  There is not a more important consideration for this life than making preparation for the after life. 
Let’s make sure.  It is deadly serious business.  It is the difference between an eternity of peace or an eternity of pain.  Heaven or hell? 
The difference is in one Man—Christ Jesus—and a personal relationship with Him.  If you haven’t received Christ, then you are without hope.  Don’t live another day in that condition!  Trust in Him and turn from your sin by repentance and faith.  Then you will, “Be prepared!”
