John 3verse 3 found also in Isaiah 40:3
Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.
John's message was one of repentance as an act of preparation to meet with Jesus.
I am reminded of Zaccheus, Luke 19:1-9 who was looking for Jesus, repented of sinful ways and was committed to restitution Jesus not only came to his house but said that "Today Salvation has come to this house".
Another way to prepare our hearts for Jesus is to Thank him,
He who sacrifices thank offerings honors me, and he prepares the way so that I may show him the salvation of God."
We get greater clarity when we are thankful so that we can see God at work, bringing health to every part of lives.
