Growing In Christ

Day 15: The Big Reveal

Read: Start by reading John 1:29–31 out loud. 

“The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, ‘Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! This is the one I meant when I said, “A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.” I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel’ ” (John 1:29–31 NIV).

Day 14: Insignificant

Read: Start by reading John 1:28 out loud a few times. 

“This all happened at Bethany on the other side of the Jordan, where John was baptizing” (John 1:28 NIV).

Meditate: The place called Bethany in verse 28 is truly insignificant, except that John the Baptist probably baptized Jesus there. 

Day 13: Not Worthy

Read: Start by reading John 1:24–27 out loud. 

Now the Pharisees who had been sent questioned him, “Why then do you baptize if you are not the Messiah, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet? I baptize with water,” John replied, “but among you stands one you do not know. He is the one who comes after me, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie.” —John 1:24–27 NIV
