35 Again, the next day, John stood with two of his disciples. 36 And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, “Behold the Lamb of God!”
37 The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.
John 1:35 states that two of John the Baptist’s disciples left him to follow Jesus. John the Baptist wasn’t bitter towards Jesus or the disciples who left him because he knew his role and Jesus’ role. Unfortunately some preachers, pastors, ministers, evangelist, teachers and Christians etc. see themselves as rivals, in an unspoken and sometimes spoken competition for followers or people. They even sometimes have circles of friends that are at odds with other circles.
This is not a competition.
We are all on SUPPOSED to be on the same team.
Even within a church family ministers, deacons, choir members and members can find themselves at odds…in silly political battle for position. This is all a distraction from the enemy.The devil doesn’t mind us going to church if he can keep us distracted with foolishness.
There’s no reason for anyone to be threatened or jealous of anyone else’s anointing, position, calling or mission – God needs the people on His team to work together.
