He Heard, So He Spoke

To read the Bible in a year, read Luke 3.
We know the time when John the Baptizer began preaching, for Luke wrote, “Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, his brother Philip tetrarch of Iturea and the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene, while Annas and Caiaphas were high priests, the word of God came to John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness” (Luke 3:1, 2). Why did John begin to preach? “The word of God came to John,” and so, “he went into all the region around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins” (v. 3). God spoke to John, therefore, he had to speak. Luke went on to show that this fulfilled prophecy (vv. 4-6).
You have read things in the Bible that touched you, or motivated you, or you found interesting, or created some other response in you. Why not tell someone what moved you?
