JOHN THE BAPTIST LOOKED FORWARD TO OUR TIME
You know what? John the Baptist looked forward to our time. Jesus said this of John the Baptist --and the least of those in His kingdom today:
Mat_11:11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.
It is good to look at the faithfulness of John the Baptist. Then, we must consider our present gifts, opportunities and responsibilities. Let us be good and faithful servants in our time.
Luke 12:47 And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
Luke 12:48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
