Luke 7: 28 – “I tell you, among those born of women there is no one greater than John…”
We, as humans go through life instinctively being influenced by other people. There are those in our lives whom we admire and look up to. When that happens, we end up taking on their mannerisms. We may act a little bit like them. In many cases, we begin to see the world in the same way that they do.
When I hear Jesus give testimony about the greatness of John the Baptist, it makes me want to pay better attention to John’s life. I begin to wonder if there are life lessons that I could learn from him. I begin to ask what it was that made his life so great in the eyes of our Lord and Savior Jesus. Most of all, I wonder if the life of John can still have an influence and impact on my life as I study what is recorded about him in the scriptures.
During the month of May, we are going to be taking a close look at John the Baptist’s life. Hopefully we will all be open to hearing the life lessons that John can teach us. Let us follow his example of serving God’s will with his entire life. Let us be mindful of our calling to prepare the way for God to change lives. Let us gain the true perspective of life finding fulfillment and meaning through our relationship with Jesus Christ the savior.
Make a commitment to join us each Sunday morning in May to learn life lessons from John the Baptist.
