The Christian task is that of John the Baptist – to point the light, Jesus, to world and follow it. It is often said of Christians nowadays that they are only signposts because they point the way but never follow it themselves. Our task, as we all are aware, is to be John the Baptist of our generation, to point Jesus to the world and follow Him ourselves.
Let’s diligently point Jesus and the kingdom of the Lord to the world and follow it with all humility. John the Baptist, our number one mentor in this regard, was beheaded in delivering this particular task. Do not fear the world, just deliver your God given task whilst you live. God be with us all.
