Luke 3:16–John answered and said to them all, “As for me, I baptize you with water; but One is coming who is mightier than I, and I am not fit to untie the thong of His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
John knew his purpose and his place. He did not look to be more than he was called to be. He didn’t let his fame and popularity take away from his message. Do we ever become so distracted that we pay more attention to the results of our message instead of the message itself? We are to be obedient to God and then allow Him to take care of the results.
Lord, I will be obedient to the calling and purpose You’ve given me and not get distracted by the results. I pray You will lead me in everything I do today.
