This week we take a look at the quintessential “king of the hill” battle that takes place between the disciples of John the Baptist and Jesus’ disciples. I’m sure their intentions were good, but what they didn’t realize was that John knew exactly what he was here to do. Jesus knew what he was here to do. It wasn’t John the Baptist or Jesus who were confused, it was their followers.
So we see that the point of following Jesus is to make much of Jesus and not try to position ourselves for power and prestige.
