A Sandal Strap of Jesus

Everyone knew that John the Baptizer was someone great, but he told the people, “There comes One after me who is mightier than I, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to stoop down and loose. I indeed baptized you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit” (Mark 1:7-8).
John, the greatest man ever born, said that someone was even greater, and that was Jesus the Christ, the Son of the living God, Lord of heaven and earth.
Among the many reasons that John could have listed, he mentioned that he only baptized in water, but Jesus would baptize in the Holy Spirit. How much greater is the Holy Spirit than water? The Spirit created water!
Loosing the sandal strap of someone seems like such a menial thing, but not when we are talking about the Son of God. Yet, He washed the feet of His disciples!
Amazing Jesus, how sweet the sound of His name!
