Who Was John the Baptist?

Bible Study Lesson — John 1: 6-9

The Christmas story continues with the introduction of John the Baptist.

He came to tell the world about Jesus without looking for star status for himself. John knew who Christ was.  Do we?

The Christmas Story – Who Was John the Baptist?

There came a man sent from God, whose name was John.

He came as a witness, to testify about the Light, so that all might believe through him.

He was not the Light, but he came to testify about the Light.

There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man. – John 1: 6-9 NASB

Reflectors of The Light

As Christians we are closely related to John the Baptist. We are not the source of God’s light; we merely reflect that light. Jesus Christ is the true Light and He helps us see our way.

But Christ has chosen to reflect his light through his followers to an unbelieving world, perhaps because unbelievers are not able to bear the full blazing glory of his light firsthand.

Our Job is to Go & Tell

We are commissioned to share Christ to others in a gentle and understanding way.

One of the best ways to express yourself as a Christian is by your actions and the way you are ready to help those who do not yet understand.

Our mission in life is to …

  • Go
  • Serve
  • and Share.

Bringing Others to Christ

The word witness indicates our role as reflectors of Christ’s light. We are never to present ourselves as the light to others, only to point them to “Christ; the Light.”

Stay tuned for the rest of the Christmas Story.

Love in Christ
