TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
When you exalt Me in the assembly, I can draw all men to Me. Put Me at the center of your life. When you humble yourself in My sight and point to Me, I can lift you up.
SHINE THE SPOTLIGHT
When you get baptized you’re making a public announcement that Jesus Christ has moved from obscurity to the forefront. Why? Because that’s what Jesus doing when He went to the Jordan River and looked His cousin John in the eyes.
Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. But John tried to deter him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” Jesus replied, “Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness.” Then John consented. – Matthew 3:13-15
Jesus was stepping out of obscurity into the spotlight. When you get baptized, you’re saying, “Jesus is not on my back burner any longer. Everybody doesn’t know who Jesus is in my life, but they will now. He’s moving from the wings to center stage.”
Baptism is a sign that you’re stepping into a new destiny in Christ. You are sanctified or separated from your past and you’re consecrated to your true purposes in God.
Have you let the world know you’re not the star of the show? Have you stepped out in faith and said, “I’m going to follow Jesus because He’s my everything. When you see what He’s done in me, you’ll see how awesome He is”? Take the plunge and step out of the shadows. Shine the light on Jesus.
