Hook: Looking back, who introduced you to a person who became significant in your life?
Book: Even though John the Baptist was misidentified with other important people, He clearly understood his role to introduce others to Jesus. He pushed the limelight away from himself to the Lord, the thongs of whose sandals John was not worthy to untie. He was simply a voice calling in the desert to point people home to God through faith in Jesus.
Took: Sadly, too many people fail to understand their need to be connected to the Savior. Who needs you to follow John’s example by pointing them to Jesus? What could you do?
