“For I say unto you, among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he” Luke 7:28.
This is one, among many, of my favorite verses from the Word of God.
John the Baptist never performed a single miracle in the history of his lifetime, yet Jesus said he was the greatest of all the prophets. But when it comes to the new testament saints, those who have been born again and live by faith in the finished work of Jesus on the cross, the least in the kingdom of God are greater than John the Baptist. Oh, what a wonderful love the Father has toward us. Know who you are in Christ. Thank you, God, for your mercy.
