This verse is referring to Christ and His righteousness. It is His righteous that prepares the way for you and me. Righteousness goes before me to prepare me.
It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 1 Corinthians 1:30
Because of the righteousness of Christ in me, the truth I hold in my heart will prepare the way of the Lord. I know that Jesus is coming back again. I believe His Word that He is. I live my life in preparation of that day. I know I will be ready. My feet are set in the way of His steps.
How does this verse prepare me to expand His Kingdom?
As I anticipate His coming I will prepare the way, as John the Baptist did in the wilderness.
This is the one about whom it is written: “‘I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way before you.’ Matthew 11:10
I will turn from sin as often as it comes my way, and I will be filled with His righteousness to do what is right in His eyes, so I can be His messenger to the world sharing the good news with a hurting generation.
Jesus is the way.
