Pointing Away From Ourselves

Home>>Blog>>Pointing Away From Ourselves

“The next day he saw Jesus coming towards him and declared, ‘Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! This is he of whom I said, ‘After me comes a man who ranks ahead of me because he was before me.’” (John 1:29-30)  Perhaps you are like me and you’re still trying to figure out what to do with the new year: diet, better exercise, more consistency in a quiet time.  Whatever the particulars of your sense of 2017, I hope that we might all join together to commit to a more John-like life.  What does that mean?  In general, it means a consistent pointing away from ourselves to Christ.  In this era of social media, that may be particularly challenging.  Still, I think a question that we need to ask ourselves is this: “Are we more concerned with keeping the spotlight on ourselves or helping others meet Jesus?”  Whatever the individual details of that might mean for you, I do hope that you will join me in seeking to live a life that better reflects the love and giving nature of our Triune God.
