Fulfill Our Own
Everyone has a purpose in life. Although the purposes of many individuals differ one from another, there is yet a single purpose that is common to every one. That purpose is to fear God and keep His commandments so that the spirit of a person may return unto the God Who gave it. Without knowing one’s purpose, one cannot achieve it. The prophet Isaiah announced the purpose of John the Baptist, and, more than seven centuries later, John knew and fulfilled that purpose, acknowledging to his audiences that he was the voice of one who cried in the wilderness that the way of the Savior might be prepared. The purpose of John the Baptist was to help us know and fulfill our own.
