John 1:22-23 - Then they said to him, "Who are you, so that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?" 23 He said, "I am A VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS, 'MAKE STRAIGHT THE WAY OF THE LORD,' as Isaiah the prophet said." NASU
No, I am not talking about singing or being on a TV show. I am talking about God calling you "the or a Voice" because your voice is used to inform people about Jesus Christ the Messiah who is coming.
John the Baptist was telling everyone the Messiah was coming and you better repent for the kingdom of God is near.
John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. And all the country of Judea was going out to him, and all the people of Jerusalem; and they were being baptized by him in the Jordan River, confessing their sins.
John was getting it done. He was accomplishing the task before him. He was preaching the Lord was coming and the people were listening. They were coming to him from Judea and Jerusalem. I believe we can preach a similar message today because Jesus Christ is coming again.
I also believe if we tell people about Jesus Christ people will likewise be converted. They will put their faith in Jesus Christ, confess Him as their Lord and be baptized for the forgiveness of their sins and receive the Holy Spirit.
Go ahead and be like John the Baptist and allow your voice to be used to glorify God and His Son, Our Savior Jesus Christ.
What greater compliment could one receive than someone saying, "He/She uses their voice for God."?

Small town newspaper once ran this advertisement: "Read the Bible to know what people ought to do. Read this paper to know what they actually do."
