What Modern Preachers Can Learn From John The Baptist

Many modern preachers are clearly in the “ministry” in order to elevate themselves. They are focused on building their name-brand recognition when they should be shining the spotlight on Jesus. They should learn from the example of John the Baptist, one of the greatest prophets who ever lived:

An argument developed between some of John’s disciples and a certain Jew over the matter of ceremonial washing. 26 They came to John and said to him, “Rabbi, that man who was with you on the other side of the Jordan—the one you testified about—look, he is baptizing, and everyone is going to him.”

27 To this John replied, “A person can receive only what is given them from heaven. 28 You yourselves can testify that I said, ‘I am not the Messiah but am sent ahead of him.’ 29 The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom’s voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete. 30 He must become greater; I must become less.” (John 3:25-30)

BEWARE ANY PREACHER WHO TRIES TO BECOME GREATER, AND DOWNPLAYS THE IMPORTANCE OF CHRIST!!
