The Glory of the Incarnation: The Path to Greatness
John the Baptist is the first case study of what can happen in a person’s life when they connect to the glory of God in Jesus. Through John’s connection with Jesus, John became great in the sight of God (Matthew 11:11,14). John’s greatness is seen in the way he served God and others in a spirit of humility. What enabled John to change into a person of greatness is due to his focus on Jesus, and because John understood Jesus to be the lamb of God who died for all his sins. There is a principle which states, whatever you focus your life on, this thing will ultimately define your life. By focusing on the goodness and grace of Jesus, we will become great in the eyes of God as humble servants of Jesus.
