“Pointing Others to Christ”

I love the All in the Family episode where Archie Bunker dreams of becoming a member of “The Cannonballers,” the best bowling team in the local league.

He wants to be on the team so badly he can taste it.  In great detail, he describes their bowling shirts: All silk, with bright red piping on the collar and sleeves and on the back was a picture of a cannon firing bowling balls at a set of pins.  Archie says, “When you got something like that on your back, Edith, you know you’re somebody.”

Of course, it’s all satire but the episode does raise a good question – Who are you and where do you find your identity?

This coming Sunday we’re going to look at John the Baptist because he knew two important things about himself – He knew who he WAS and he knew who he WASN’T!

Because John the Baptists knew these two things about himself, he enjoyed a very fruitful and successful ministry that pointed others to Christ.  I hope you’ll take the time to read a portion of his story recorded in John 1:19-34.

Hope to see you Sunday!
