ENCOUNTERS WITH JESUS

JOHN THE BAPTIST

Our thoughts this week focus John the Baptist's meetings with Jesus. From his statements we learn the following:

John's testimony provides us with a high view of Christ and of his death. This view is validated by the rest of the New Testament witness. It stands as a challenge to all of us to consider our own answers to the two most important questions we will ever answer:

Question 1: Who do you say that Jesus is?

Question 2: Why did Jesus die?

Our eternal destiny, our relationship with the one true God, depends on our answers.

Scriptures: Matthew 3:11, 3:13-17; Mark 1:7-8; Luke 3:16; John 1:29-34.
