"Someone is coming soon who is greater than I am"
John the Baptist said this about Jesus - before Jesus had begun any public ministry.
If you go on to read even the next few chapters in Mark’s gospel you will see how true this was. Jesus began to minister and there was power... there was miracle... people were shaken out of their complacency and lives began to be changed.
Then we come to Easter. We have just finished remembering what Jesus did at Easter. And many of us have been left once again with an awareness of how much greater Jesus is than we are. Not only that, but we realise again and again He is so much greater than we ever realised. Can we endeavour to carry this with us as we go forward? He is great... He is the Son of the Most High God... He has conquered death, hell and the grave... and He is our Lord! Can we get our eyes off ourselves and on to Him and realise this is the One who wants to walk with us and strengthen us through every circumstance?
And there will come another day... when we will go to be with Him or He will return to take all of His church to be with Him. In that day... whether it be soon or far off... surely we do not want to be saying, with regret, He is so much greater than I ever realised? Let’s start to walk with the resurrected, victorious Christ and begin to share in what He has brought to the children of men. We can never know fully all that He has done for us, but we can begin to walk into that light and victory more fully than we have done before.
Let’s move forward and walk on resurrection ground!
