Homily / The one who is coming after John is coming to save us from this unquenchable fire.
“We can't understand how good salvation is unless we grasp what we have been saved from.”
The coming of Jesus is a search and rescue operation. It is the biggest one of all time.
If we don't understand the bad news we will have little appreciation and gratitude for the mission of our Saviour. We won't get the good news.
