He Paved the Way – A Poem

John the Baptist did not care
What people thought of his wild hair

Repent and be baptized his hue and cry
Messiah is coming, His kingdom is nigh

John the Baptist lost his head
But because of Jesus he is not dead

John paved the way for eternal life
Found in the Son who gave His life

Content with his place in history
John showed the Way for you and me

Jesus increased in wisdom and power
John decreased at the proper hour

Jesus now reigns as King of kings
To our Lord and Savior we sing

John is an honored martyred soul
Under God’s altar for his prophetic role

So now we find our identity in Christ
Who gave His life and paid the price

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

    • Thanks. I have to give God the credit for this one. He wrote the story and then He gave me the words to share it during my prayer time yesterday. I’m so glad these words were a blessing. Peace, Linda

    • Deb, Thanks! We are studying Matthew in Bible Study Fellowship and just finished chapter 3 about John baptizing Jesus. There is so much wonderful truth in God’s Word, I just had to share. Peace, Linda
