Matthew 3:11 “I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. But he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:”
And let people be mistaken about John’s claim for himself, John said, there is someone coming after me who is greater. He is the one you should look to. He is the one who is the greatest of all. He is so great, He is so mighty, that I am not even worthy to stoop down and unlash his shoes. That was the lowliest, humblest thing that a slave could do for his master. Yet John the Baptist said of the one who was coming after him, He is so great I am not even worthy to do the lowest thing for Him. This man who was the greatest of all men, said one is coming who is greater than I.
And surely today every person who has ever met Jesus, every person who knows Him has to say, yes there is one who is greater than I. There is one who can meet the needs of human hearts.
