Is. 49: 3, 5-6; 1 Cor. 1: 1-3; Jn. 1: 29-34
The Lord speaks to Isaiah telling him “You are my servant through whom I show my glory.” We have a duty to be light to the nations—to be a light to those around us. We all share a portion in fulfilling this duty along with His family of believers. We support each other, we don’t have the whole load. But like the individual spokes of a wheel, it is vital that we carry our part of the load. If we work together to fulfill His mandate to be holy, the path is smoother. We will recognize Jesus in our fellow believers and in those we serve. There is joy in loving and serving the Jesus we see in each person.
People will recognize Jesus by the love and care they experiencefrom those who truly follow Him. John the Baptist had an expectant heart and joyfully recognized Jesus’ Spirit, testifying he is the Son of God.
