John the Baptist




Let's learn to be a

Champion

like

John the Baptist!



John the Baptist was a Bible Champion.

~ ~ ~

John the Baptist

served God

with Bravery and Boldness.


He was Courageous!



He inspires us with his

GREAT

self-control and determination.


One of the secrets to the

Power

and

Dedication

in his life

is revealed

in the Bible.

John 3:30

~ ~ ~ ~ ~


One day

John the Baptist

was discussing Jesus with some men.


John explained to them:

"He must increase; I must decrease."


In other words:

Jesus must become more important

and

I must become less important.

- - -

These words weren't just about

the position of Jesus in society

and in the religious community.

It also indicated John's personal dedication to Jesus.


John learned the secret of making Jesus

(Jesus' words & goals)

a focus of importance in his life

while

he intentionally worked on

making his own wants and desires less important.



To have victory over temptations and selfishness,

we have to make Jesus more important in our life

and make our wants and desires

less important in our life.



In order to please God and be a Champion for Christ,

we have to make Jesus more important in our life

and

make our wants and desires

less important in our life.

Let's position ourselves for

VICTORY!

Dear Lord,

Remind me to often think about John's words.

Give me ideas

on

how to

apply John the Baptist's words

to my life.

Show me how to increase YOU in my life.

Show me how to decrease "myself" in my life.

You have GREAT plans for me!

You have GREAT Plans for me to be an Overcomer!

You have GREAT Victories for me to experience!

I will position myself so that I can

receive

your inspiration and motivation.


When I am following you closely,

I will see miracles in my life.


I declare that my life will look more and more

like

JESUS!

AMEN!
