Read John 1:6-18
John testified about [Jesus] when he shouted to the crowds, “This is the one I was talking about when I said, ‘Someone is coming after me who is far greater than I am, for he existed long before me.’” John 1:15 (NLT)
John the Baptist was used in amazing ways by God, including pointing people to Jesus, the Messiah. But he never lost sight of the fact that he was just a messenger, that believing in Jesus, fully God and fully man, is our only hope of salvation. As we head into the new year, let’s remember to honor God for all that He is, and give Him all the glory for our salvation.
