Woodlawn Family Bible Study
BIBLE READING: Matthew 3:1-12
My daughters both play volleyball, which is a total team game. One is the setter for the other players. Her job is to set the ball up for others to spike and score. John the Baptist’s job was to set the world up for the arrival of Jesus. Everything he did in his ministry pointed toward Jesus. As Jesus got deeper into His ministry, John even mentioned how his role needed to decrease as Jesus' increased.
Application: We need to set others up for success. We also need to use our lives to point towards Christ.
