In this podcast, I share an important truth from one of my favorite biblical characters- John the Baptist. In the midst of a religious system filled with anxiety and expectations for the kind of prophet/ manager he is supposed to be, John clearly characterizes who he is and who he is not. And, as you shall meet, as we search closely at this excerpt in John 1:19 -2 8, it is a key foundation for his authority from God.
The following is the handout I refer to in the letter that we placed in the bulletin for parties to fill in. I trust you will find it helpful 😛 TAGEND
” There are different kinds of utters calling you to different kinds of work and the problem is to find out which is the voice of God rather than of society, say, or the super-ego, or self-interest. By and large-scale, a good rule for finding out is this: The kind of work God often announces you is the kind of work: a) that you are required to most to do and b) that the world countries most need to have done…the place God entitles you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.” Frederick Buechner, Wishful Thinking: A Seeker’s ABC
