*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*WAIT FOR YOUR MOMENT.*
John 1:29 *The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
Jesus was not known until John the Baptist announced Him.
Jesus went to Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John had baptized the previous day.
As powerful as Jesus was, He was not known at His first appearance until John the Baptist introduced Him as *.....the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.*, John 1: 29.
John remains a distinguished disciple to have recorded Christ as God compared to other gospel writers like Matthew, Mark and Luke who recorded Him as Son of Man, the Servant-Christ, conceived by and born of a woman.
Specifically, Matthew's and Luke's gospels recorded His genealogy as Son of Man, while Mark recorded Him as the Servant-Christ. John recorded Him as the God-incarnate.
This is very important for our fundamental understanding that Jesus is not just 100% man but also 100% God.
John says in John 1:14 *And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.*
Following the example of Jesus, no man is without an introduction, and everyone needs someone to point him the way.
It tells us that the man of God is a man, though he is of God. John the Baptist was sent from God *...to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.* He was only 100% man. He only came from God but not God's incarnate
God knows Jesus is God, yet He laid for us the need for recognition, honor, and respect to whom it is due.
It tells us that when we wait for our time, enough grounds will be provided for our graceful entrance.
Many people have gone ahead of their time of graceful entrance.
When we wait for the time of our entrance, we will honorably be heralded in, and everyone will notice our respectable entrance.
Wait for your time of honor.
Wait for your moment.
Jesus, as powerful as He was waited for the moment that ushered Him to His ministry.
*Call to Word action.*
Do not rush ahead of your recognition and honor. Wait for your moment.
*The Christian clarion duty.*
Stay within reach of observation
Lord, help me not to miss my moment of honor, in Jesus name.
Good morning all, and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
