THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
A politician was really angry at the editor of a local newspaper.
He said, "You've insulted me. I demand an apology."
The editor said, "Now, just a moment sir. Didn't we run the story of your resignation as
city treasurer exactly as you gave it to us?"
The politician said, "Yes. You did. But you ran it in the section named 'Public Improvements!'"
35 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;
36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!
I guess the politician didn't understand his REAL VALUE!
As Christians, we need to understand our REAL VALUE!
John was an humble man who lived his life for God.
The Bible tells us that he dressed very simply and his diet was also very simple (See Matthew 3).
But John was a man who KNEW who he was.
He was a BELIEVER in Jesus Christ.
He knew that Jesus was the long-awaited MESSIAH.
He knew that the Bible (Old Testament) said that MESSIAH was none other than the Lord Jehovah Himself (See Isaiah 43:11, 60:16).
And John knew that, as a BELIEVER in Christ, he was called to point out THE Truth - Jesus.
Though we, as Christians, are to be humble; we are called to STAND UP and POINT OUT Jesus
as the only Lord and Savior.
Thatís our REAL VALUE of being in the world for Jesus.
