I heard about a pastor who was flattered when one of his members
made him feel good by asking for tapes of his sermons.
Then she explained that she had an insomnia problem and they
helped put her to sleep at night.

Matt 11:11
Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women
there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist:
notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven
is greater than he.

LIGHT from the WORD.

All those before John the Baptist preached of a Messiah to come:
Adam, Moses, Abraham, Jacob, David, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel,
and a host of other prophets had preached of Messiah to come.

John not only SAW Jesus but BAPTIZED Him!
He preached of a Messiah Who was HERE!
Therefore, John the Baptist was greater than all prophets before him.

But you, my Christian friend, even as a new "babe" in Christ,
have a greater prophecy than John the Baptist!
And you have a greater testimony to share with others!

He is there in your sorrows to bring comfort from grief.
He is there in your persecution to assure that the "bruised reed"
is not broken.
He is there in your weakness to assure that the "smoking flax"
is not put out.
And He is there in your allocution (your testimony of Him) to
assure that others know you are speaking truth!

Because of Christ, it is GREAT to be LEAST in His kingdom!

Don't be "hum drum" about speaking of Christ!
Speak with EXCITEMENT!

Love ya!
