I would guess that most of y’all are about to hit the sack. I remember what the shrieking sound of the alarm as it breaks the peace that comes with sleep. Almost poetic, ain’t it?
Here’s a little something for you to ponder as you go about your day tomorrow.
“I baptize with water, but among you stands one you do not know, even he who comes after me, the strap of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie.” -John 1
John the Baptist knew his role and God gave to him everything that he needed to be John the Baptist. He did it so well that in his passing, Jesus proclaimed him the greatest prophet ever.
You can’t be everything for everybody. Knowing who you are and how that impacts others is one of the most valuable qualities that a person can possess. Seek for it. God will give you all that you need to be who you are.
Jesus is still doing this work today. Just let Him do it. “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” Through Him, we can do all that God has assigned us...when we know our role.
Won’t you declare that tonight?
-Pastor Butch
