All Scriptures in KJV

“Embracing Being Least”
Intro:
• Matthew 11: 9-11 …”But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet. For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. Mat 11:9-11”. (Imagine if Jesus said this about you…. And you are in prison near execution.)
– He was greatest prophet (ie – the hinge of history Proclaimer)

John modeled a different kind of “Greatest”
• Matthew 3:4-6 , 13-15 … (4) ”And the same John had his raiment of camel’s hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey. (5) Then went out to him Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan, (6) And were baptized of him in Jordan, confessing their sins”……..(13) Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. (14).. But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? (15) …And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.”

Jesus modeled absolute Greatness
• John 12: 23-25…..32 …(23)”And Jesus answered them, saying, The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. (24) Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. (25) He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.” …. (32) And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.

John states “it”
• John 3:30 …”He must increase, but I must decrease.”

– Death to self! ………………. Elevation of Jesus



Now ……. Jesus will grow the church

• Psalms 127:1 ……”Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.” (God’s approved “building plans”)

CLOSE:
• Hebrews 12: 1-2 ….”Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (God’s approved “Builders” (embracing being least).
