  Text—Mark 9:9-13  
  As they were coming down the mountain, he ordered them to tell no one about what they had seen, until after the Son of Man had risen from the dead. So they kept the matter to themselves, questioning what this rising from the dead could mean. Then they asked him, "Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?" He said to them, "Elijah is indeed coming first to restore all things. How then is it written about the Son of Man, that he is to go through many sufferings and be treated with contempt? But I tell you that Elijah has come, and they did to him whatever they pleased, as it is written about him."  
     
  Devotional  
  Jesus, in response to a question about Elijah who was to return before the Messiah, refers to John the Baptist as the Elijah of his day. John was an Advent figure, preparing the way for the Messiah by calling people to see a need for a Savior. John paid the price for his prophetic role. Herod took his head. But, his message and his life continues as a part of the history of God's redemption and the continuing story that calls us to repentance. John was the bridge between promise and fulfillment. Listen for the prophetic message that prepares your heart to find fulfillment in Christ this Advent.  
     
  Prayer  
  I turn to you in this time, O Lord, come and bless my life. Amen
