Can you pass the test; A lesson from John’s Ministry

In Matthew 3:13-15, Jesus comes to Jordan where John is baptizing people to be baptized but John tries to deter him, saying that he needed to be baptized by Jesus and not him to baptize Jesus but Jesus replied to him that let it be so now, it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness. Then John consented. Praise God!
Now put yourself in John’s shoes. Your work is going well, people are taking notice, everything is growing. But you know that the purpose of your work is to prepare the people for Jesus, (John 1:35-37) Then Jesus arrives, and his coming tests your integrity.
Will you be able to turn your followers over to him? In this case in my generation it is not easy. Think about this🤔 as we continue. And can you pass the test🤔
John passed the test by publicly baptizing Jesus and soon he would say, “He must become greater; I must become less” read with me John 3:30.
Can we, like John, put our egos and profitable work aside in order to point others to Jesus?🤔 Are we willing to lose some of our status so that everyone will benefit?🤔
Think about this prayerfully and may God help us to see the bigger picture of doing ministry. Remember it is not our kingdom we a building but HIS. Are you preparing people for Jesus or you are making a following for yourself🤔
