John the Baptist was a hot item in his culture for a brief interval of time. When asked who he was, said he wasn’t the Messiah, wasn’t Elijah, wasn’t the prophet, and wasn’t the main attraction. Instead, he called himself messenger, a herald.
He announced the upcoming arrival of someone much, much more significant. I am the voice of one calling in the desert, “Make straight the way for the Lord” (John 1:23). Here is one truly amazing thing about discovering God in Christ: The more I find out who He is, the more I find out who I am.
John the Baptist understood that his mission was to point to another person, the Christ. And Jesus Christ came to show us who God is: No one has ever seen God, not so much as a glimpse. This one-of-a-kind God-Expression has made him plain as day (John 1:18, MSG).
I love that! No one has to be in the dark about God. Jesus Christ makes Him PLAIN AS DAY.
Life Action: What is one thing about God that Jesus makes as plain as day to you? Write it down on a piece of paper and think about it three times today.
