John 1:29-34

29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! 30 He is the one I was talking about when I said, ‘A man is coming after me who is far greater than I am, for he existed long before me.’ 31 I did not recognize him as the Messiah, but I have been baptizing with water so that he might be revealed to Israel.”

32 Then John testified, “I saw the Holy Spirit descending like a dove from heaven and resting upon him. 33 I didn’t know he was the one, but when God sent me to baptize with water, he told me, ‘The one on whom you see the Spirit descend and rest is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ 34 I saw this happen to Jesus, so I testify that he is the Chosen One of God.”


Q:John had incredible peace because freely admitted that he knew he wasn’t Christ and that he couldn’t save himself. Are you lord and master of your own soul, trying to manage it all and save yourself, or have you found peace in a Savior who is far greater than you?

Q:Are you willing to grow close to him? How are you doing that?

Q:John not only knew he wasn’t Christ, but pointed others to Christ. If you have given control of your life to Christ, and are growing close to him, are you telling other about him?
