The truth is, in Orange County, we make it ALL ABOUT US! It is clearly NOT, for one day “Every knee will bow on heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tounge will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father!” (Philippians 2:10-11).

Tomorrow, I will preach on John 1:6-9:

There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.

A couple of things stand out to me:
  1. John the Baptist had a specific MISSION and MESSAGE: He was sent by God to testify concerning the light (Jesus) so that all men might be saved.
  2. John understands that he was NOT the light…it was not about him!
  3. He is pointing people to the light, because it’s ALL ABOUT JESUS!
We should take a lesson from John and carry out the same MISSION and MESSAGE. It’s clearly not about us, but ALL ABOUT JESUS! Pray that the true light that gives light to every man would shine brightly in Orange County so that God may receive all the glory!
