For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah… (Matthew 3:3).
God uses people to fulfill His purpose. Some, like John, are mentioned by prophets, but all of us have our lives written in God’s Book before we are born (Psalm 139:13-16; Jeremiah 1:5; Ephesians 2:10; Luke 1:13-17).
Just as John was obedient to his calling, I need to be obedient to God’s calling as well.
John spoke God’s word clearly. He lived it out. He didn’t water down nor compromises his message. He didn’t let “ministry success” lead to pride. His whole life pointed everyone to Jesus.
This I must do too!
A mark of a godly leader is one who is humbly confident that God has a call on his life.
