GLEANING from Claudia: Following Jesus – It’s All About Jesus

Following Jesus masthead

READ: John 3:22-36

I admire John the Baptizer. When his disciples come to him concerned that Jesus is baptizing people too and many are going to him, John’s answer is stellar. In a condensed version he simply says, “A person can receive only what is given them from heaven.” And “He must become greater; I must become less.” John reminds his followers of the role he was given – the role he had clearly told them about. He also continue to exalt Jesus.

John’s understanding of his identity, his mission and his time is well developed. As Steve and I approach retirement, I respect John’s clarity about his role so much. It really is all about Jesus.

Lord, give me a John heart. Help me always remember that it is all about Jesus. My life, my gifts, my purpose – it is all about Jesus!
