The people were filled with expectation, and all were questioning in their hearts concerning John, whether he might be the Messiah. - Luke 3:15
John’s mission was to speak a powerful message, but he was not the One they had been awaiting. He was asked to play a role of preparation and the people have to be directed to the One who will come after him. John’s humility is his gift and it is a lovely virtue we do not think about often in this world where, if we are not number one, we have failed. God doesn’t think that way.
May our Advent practice this day be to think of others first.
