Sunday, December 14
By Intern Daniel Flucke


In last week's Gospel from Mark, we heard about John the Baptizer in the wilderness proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. This week, we hear about John again, but this time from the Gospel of John. In John's Gospel, he's really John the Witness.


John knows who he is, and he's not the important one. He's the opening act. When an opening act gets carried away and thinks they're the main event, they're not doing their job. John is the perfect opening act, God's choice to introduce Jesus, God's Son. He knows who he is, what his place is.


And that's our call too. As Christians, we know there is one savior of the world, and we also know it's not us. Our mission is to point to Jesus, not to ourselves. We're witnesses of what God has done, and what God is doing.


We are the church. We are the body of Christ. God acts in the world through us, through what we do. We can't hide, because the world needs the message God's trusted to us. We talked last week about how the church is about the business of good news. The world needs to hear that good news of God's love, the good news that God is coming.
