Daily Dose - John 1:6-8 - "He was not the light..."

Click here to listen to episode on The CC Podcast: Daily Dose Devotions.

The Gospel of John 1:6-8 (John 1:6, John 1:7, John 1:8)

In this text, John the Gospel writer focuses on John the Baptist, Jesus' cousin. He describes how John the Baptist was sent by God as a witness to bear witness about the light, which refers to Jesus. John the Baptist did not see himself as the light but rather as one who came to bear witness about the light. It is important to learn from John the Baptist's example of playing second fiddle to Jesus, and not thinking of oneself as the big deal. The testimony of one's life should bear witness to the fact that Jesus Christ is the big deal.


In addition to the CC Podcast: Daily Dose Devotions, which includes today's Bible overview devotion and many other Bible study texts, Christian Crusaders also publishes two other Christian podcasts: a weekly 30 minute worship service, The CC Broadcast, which is aired on secular and Christian radio stations around the world AND The CC Podcast: Conversations, where we feature inspiring stories from interesting Christians in an interview format.

Along with thanking our Daily Dose Devotions sponsor, The FAMiLY LEADER, we want to highlight two other Christian ministries:

(1) The Cedar Falls Bible Conference, which has gathered annually since 1922 in Cedar Falls, Iowa and features world-class, Bible-based, Gospel-centered preaching, as well as children's and student ministry programming ... all for FREE from the last Saturday in July through the first Saturday in August.

(2) Power to Change Digital Strategies, which recruits and trains anonymous, online Christian mentors to help people who are searching for answers to life's problems on the internet. If you or anyone you know could benefit from an anonymous, online Christian mentor, please visit IssuesIFace.com, a website built and maintained for the purpose of connecting people searching online with Christian mentors willing to provide love, encouragement, and truth.
