Matthew 3:11 NIV
(John the Baptist)….. “I baptise you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptise you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
John was an amazing man but he did not let fame and influence go to his head – his whole business was to point to the one who was far greater than he was – Jesus, who is the source of life, power and hope. God gives us the privilege of being signposts to point to him.
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
