John the Baptist – The Gospel of Sunday 15th January 2017


 

Gospel Jn 1:29 – 34

John the Baptist saw Jesus coming toward him and said,
“Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.
He is the one of whom I said,
‘A man is coming after me who ranks ahead of me
because he existed before me.’
I did not know him,     jb
but the reason why I came baptizing with water
was that he might be made known to Israel.”
John testified further, saying,
“I saw the Spirit come down like a dove from heaven
and remain upon him.
I did not know him,
but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me,
‘On whomever you see the Spirit come down and remain,
he is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’
Now I have seen and testified that he is the Son of God.”

What is important to understand here is that John had willingly and gladly referred Jesus as the Messiah. Although he arrived earlier and was
known to the populace, who assumed John was the chosen one,
yet he gave it all up, saying the reference in the scriptures was to Jesus.

Do we still cling to the Seats of Power even though we lack the requirements.
How many of us are willing to give up our positions for the larger good.
