A Man Sent From God
Free to Share
Author requests article critique
There was a man sent from God whose name was John. John 1:6 NIV
John the Baptist was divinely commissioned by God to proclaim the coming of the Messiah. He was not himself though the Messiah as can be seen by the fact that it says a man was sent by God. Although he was divinely committed, he was not himself divine. There never existed before John a greater teacher. And yet later Jesus tells us that he who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than John. This in no way downplays the significance of John’s mission nor the greatness of His teaching.
What can we learn from John the Baptist? As one commissioned to share the Good News, we are not to seek glory or honor for ourselves. We are to seek glory and honor for our Lord. We should consider it a true blessing to be commissioned to share the Good News. Planting the seed is so important, enough so that God sent John as a forerunner to the coming of His only Son.
