Characteristics of John the Baptist

Today I want to do something different in our devotional.  Instead of focusing on scripture we will look at the characteristics of John in a more topical format.  John was a man of self denial.  Matt 3:4.  He was a man man of courage.  Mat 3:7 & 14:4.  He was a man obedient to the cause he was given.  Matt 3:15.  John was a powerful preacher.  Mark 1:5.  He was a man of humility.  Mark 1:7 & John 1 :19-23, He had a burning zeal.  John 5:35.  He was honoured by Christ.  Matt 1:11.  John did not do any miracles.  John 10:41.  He suffered death at the hands of Herod.  Matt 14:10.  There is always a price for righteousness but the rewards always outweight the price.  Your promises are today:  Rom 12:1-2, 1 Cor 13:13, 2 Cor 1:20, Heb 4:13-15, 2 Pet 3:18, Rev 12:11.  Your Insightful Sayings are:  Music is one of the most loved and fought over forms of expression in the church context.  God does not concern Himself about how you worship Him but that you worship Him.
