From Pastor Perry

Matthew 3:4–6 (ESV)

John the Baptist Prepare the Way

Now John wore a garment of camel’s hair and a leather belt around his waist, and his food was locusts and wild honey. Then Jerusalem and all Judea and all the region about the Jordan were going out to him, and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.

 

I have always referred to this as the fashion show.  John is sporting a Calvin Klein camel’s hair coat, accessorized with a Alexander Julian leather belt.  Ok… I may be putting too much into this, but I think it is funny.  Why does the Bible mention this?  Because he is wearing the clothes of a prophet.  The people would have recognized John as a prophet.  Not only is he dressed different, but his diet is different.  That’s why it is mentioned.  People from all over were coming to see this strange man… the prophet John.

 

I pray: O Lord, help me to focus on you and to hunger for your Word.  Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
