Mark 1:7 (NIV) (John the Baptist speaking) After me comes the one more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie.
“John the Baptist clearly refused any claim to being the Messiah.” When Jesus came on the scene, John pointed his followers to Him. John had such popularity among the people that it was important for him to be clear about this. We must do the same: point people to Jesus. Our role in life is to live in a way that demonstrates the power of Jesus to transform peoples’ hearts and bring wholeness to every area of brokenness. Our testimony should never be a tool to glorify ourselves. It should glorify Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. Watch for opportunities to share your story and point people to Christ every day.
