More Forerunners

To read the Bible in a year, read Luke 10:1-24.
John the Baptist was the forerunner of the Lord, but by the time you get to Luke 10 in your reading, Herod already killed John. Did that mean no one else could prepare the hearts of the people to receive the Lord? No, because Jesus used seventy other men to do the same thing as John, “After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go” (Luke 10:1). Since that time, the Lord has increased His forerunners more than anyone can count, because every disciple of Christ, every Christian, is a forerunner of the Lord, preparing other people to receive the King.
Today, as you go about your business, think of yourself as a forerunner for Christ, preparing people to receive Christ. How shall you act toward those people?
