Luke 3 Key

v16

John answered, saying unto [them] all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:

John the baptizer was humble, because when people thought he might be Christ, he admitted that he was not, and that Christ, who was still going to come, is greater. He pointed to Christ, admitted his own unworthiness, told how Christ was greater than him, and pointed to what Christ was going to do. We should be humble like that.

Application

On Sunday afternoon, the Lord saved 2 boys at a place my friend and I have been witnessing. I give the Lord the credit for that, because He is the One who is responsible. Praise the Lord.

From: Precious Name

By Ly­dia Bax­ter, 1870 and William Doane in 1871
O the precious Name of Jesus!
How it thrills our souls with joy,
When His loving arms receive us,
And His songs our tongues employ!

Precious Name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of Heav’n.
Precious Name, O how sweet!
Hope of earth and joy of Heav’n.
