John the Baptist bore witness to Jesus as the Son of God saying, “I am not the Christ, but rather, I have been sent before him”. (John 3:28)
John the Baptist was crystal clear about his life mission; he was preparing for Christ’s ministry. His faith was solid and he kept the limelight firmly on Jesus. Not long after this event, he was arrested and beheaded.
To where do I direct others through my example?
Lord, guide and strengthen my personal mission today. May I remain firm to my faith and committed to your teachings. This I ask through your Holy Spirit. Amen
Prayer: Renewal Prayer
give us humility wherever pride reigns,
pardon wherever offence abides,
grace wherever sin abounds;
we pray to you;
Jesus Christ, risen Lord, have mercy on us. Amen.
