“Truly, I say to you, among those born of women there has arisen no one greater than John the Baptist” (Matt. 11:11). That’s high praise coming from Jesus. After all, “those born of women” pretty much includes everyone ever born! But why would Jesus give so high compliment to such a – let’s face it – bizarre character? The dude dressed in camel skin and ate locusts! And that was weird even in Bible times. Surely such high praise from the Son of God would warrant a little boasting, right? Wrong. In fact, it was John’s incredible humility that positioned him to be the perfect warm-up act for Jesus’ arrival. Join us for part three of Selfless, where we will learn the formula for humility from John the Baptist.
