Jesus and John the Baptist / John 3:22-36

John the Baptist prepared the way for Jesus by pointing to Him and His kingdom, by finding his greatest joy in Jesus’ exaltation, and by warning others and witnessing to the love and power of God. Because John recognized his purpose and his identity, he offered his heart with joyful gladness to the Messiah who was coming. From John we learn how to find our identity in Christ and how our mission goes forward as people who “decrease” in order that Christ may receive all the glory.
