John and Us

John the baptizer told his disciples, “You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, ‘I am not the Christ,’ but, ‘I have been sent before Him'” (John 3:28).
John did not draw people to himself, but pointed them in the direction of the Christ.
Likewise, none of us is the Christ, but we have been sent after Him to show people that Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.
Therefore, in all your dealings with everyone, be thinking to yourself, how you can at some time, point them in the direction of Christ.
