Today we are doing our devotion differently. Instead of focusing on a scripture we will look the characteristics of John in a more topical format.
1. John practiced self denial. Matt 3:4
2. He was a man of courage. Matt3:7 and 14:4
3. He was obedient to the cause he was given. Matt 3:15
4. John was a powerful preacher. Mark 1:5
5. He was man of humility. Mark 1:7 & John 1:19-13
6. He had a burning zeal. John 5:35
7. He was honoured by Christ. Matt 1:11 & Luke 7:24-27
8. John did not do any miracles. John 10:41
9. He suffered martyrdom at the hands of Herod. Matt 14:10
There will always be a price for righteousness but the rewards always outweigh the price.
