Mark 1:7 : Blog Through the Bible Project
And this was his message: “After me comes the one more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie.
We live in an age of scrambling for scraps of attention or notoriety. For 15 minutes of fame.
In this world of ours, how refreshing is the message of John the Baptist.
He does not exalt himself; his message is not about himself; he points to someone greater than himself.
Being in love with Jesus, focusing on Jesus frees one from excessive focus on oneself.
The work I do–blogging and writing–is a form of communication. It needs attention and readers to be successful communication. But how blessed to do it quietly and peacefully, my eyes on Jesus, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie.
Oh Jesus, help me to retain my focus on you through my day.
