Gospel of John, Chapter 1 (Part 3)

Children of God

Why did Jesus desrcribe John (John 1:6) as the greatest man who ever lived (Matthew 11:11)? Was it his charisma? Was it in his delivery? Was it location or style? Was he focused on reaching the right generation? Of course you probably answered no to all those quesstions. You and I both know what made John the baptist great, was his humility before God, and the message which he brought to mankind. John brough the message of hope, which points mankind out of darkness and toward the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ. We do well as disciples of Jesus Christ to point people to Him.

Those who accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior are given the right to be called children of God! – John 1:12-13
