We're going to spend the next couple of days looking at John the Baptist--first in Luke today and then in some parallel passages in Matthew, Mark and John, which will provide us with additional context and information to draw from.
Many things strike me about John the Baptist, but the main thing that drew me in today was John's boldness in proclaiming Christ. He wasn't afraid. He was confident and didn't hold back. He spoke the truth to everyone. I love that because as Christ-followers, we are all charged with proclaiming the gospel message to those around us. So John's example motivated and encouraged me this morning to step it up in the area of presenting Christ to others. Thank you, John!
So how did John's words and actions impact you? What was one thing you noticed about how John proclaimed Christ? Tami
