He is the One & Hash Brown Cups

John 1:27 (nirv)

He is the One who comes after me. I am not good enough to untie his sandals.

This is John the Baptist speaking when being questioned about who he was by the Jews. And his response to this question is something that I think we all can, and should, take a deeper look at. John displayed complete humility while completing his work that was given to him from God.

He knew that God called him to be a witness for Jesus’ coming. He was preparing the path, leading the way, and setting the tone. That’s a pretty big deal. He had direct knowledge from God that something, Someone, was about to change the world. He was on the inside of a very small circle. But he didn’t let that go to his head.

Even if we’re living out our calling and purpose, doing the work that God prepared specifically for us to do, we can become prideful and get confused about what we’re really doing, why we’re doing it, and Who we’re doing it for. It’s easy to let our work begin to speak for itself instead of speaking for the One we’re called to glorify. We chase recognition and seek compliments, and unknowingly attempting to block the light from the only One who really shines.

Awhile back, I was really stuck in my writing for FaithFull Mornings. I sent a voice message to my friend Chelsea and asked her to pray for me, that I would find the inspiration and words to speak for an upcoming post. What I love about her is that she doesn’t just mail it in. It would have been so easy to respond with a “I got you girl! Praying!” But instead, she responded with a gentle reminder of the humility that’s necessary for Christians as we walk through this life.

She told me that it didn’t really matter what I said, because God would do the talking. It wasn’t my job to write an award-winning novel, to change the world, or even to make an impact on someone’s life. The responsibility that God has given me through this journey is to humbly point a spotlight on Him.

We can all learn from John the Baptist and his modest mentality. Despite being given the greatest of assignments, we’re never more than messengers. And even though John wasn’t seeking honor or glory, or even recognition, because He served a good God, he still got it anyway. His work, his sufferings, and his commitment to the Lord is highlighted throughout the New Testament. John knew that his role wasn’t to elevate himself, but to elevate the name of Jesus. And because he showed humility and faithfulness, God elevated him to glory also.

Are there any areas of your life that you struggle to practice humility and modesty? How can you decide to use that area for giving glory to God instead of yourself?

For a humble heart.
