I have been those Pharisees whom John called a brood of vipers. I have been among those who thought once I came back to God and went through the motions of my faith that my conversion was done.
John's words echo to me now, "Repent! Rethink your life and look for the ways it still needs to change." says his voice. The One who is the the Kingdom of God has come and will come again.
My life is a ongoing process of conversion. Every day I remain on this earth calls me to repentance so that I may be more conformed to Christ and ready to stand before Him when He comes.
Conversion and repentance call for humility. I need to let go of my pride and present myself to God in my nothingness so that He may fill me with His everything.
