Matthew 3:4–6 (ESV)

John the Baptist Prepares the Way

4Now John wore a garment of camel’s hair and a leather belt around his waist, and his food was locusts and wild honey. 5Then Jerusalem and all Judea and all the region about the Jordan were going out to him, 6and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.

 

I always look at this passage as the latest in fashion trends.  So… why do they describe his attire of camel’s hair and a leather belt.  This is not normal attire, but it is what prophets wore.  They are hearing about John the prophet, they expect to see him dressed like a prophet.  What was more important is not what he was wearing, but what he was doing.  He was calling for the people to “repent” and they came “confessing their sins” and being baptized.  John is doing what he is supposed to do!

 

I pray: O Lord, help me to tell others about Jesus and what he has done for me and for the world.  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.
