"For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a GREATER prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is LEAST in the kingdom of God is GREATER than he." (Luke 7:28)
We don't always have to be first; We don't always have to be the one that knows all the answers; We don't always have to be right; We don't always have to be in charge; We don't always have to be "all that"; Believe it or not God was functioning before we came along and He will be functioning after we are gone, He is God!!! If we humble ourselves we can serve Him with grace and power but Jesus alone must be magnified. If we forget our purpose and become self-absorbed, in the end we become what we Worship!!! We must stay focused on our service to Jesus and His Kingdom or we will be like the "old wine skins" that Jesus talked about, we burst instead of containing the freshness of the Holy Spirit!!!
