In John 10:41-42 it says, “Though John never performed a miraculous sign, all that John said about this man (Jesus) was true.” And in that place many believed in Jesus.
I want to challenge people with an encouraging word. It’s for all those who don’t feel successful, noticed, important or appreciated.
Just because you’re not performing miraculous signs doesn’t mean you’re not making a mighty impact in this world.
John the Baptist was beheaded. While he was in prison I’m sure he was wondering if anything he said or did made a real, significant impact on the world. (Matthew 11:2-3)
What we know is: John’s ministry made more of a difference than he would know. By the time you get to (John 10:41), the Bible says “many people” came to Jesus and placed their faith in Him. And it was all because of John the Baptist’s faithful ministry.
Maybe God will allow you to do miraculous things. Or maybe He’ll simply call you to a faithful ministry that will prepare the way for someone else. Which ever role you were designed for has great value.
I have a feeling that when we get to heaven, we’ll discover that much of the heavy lifting for the advancement of the Gospel wasn’t done by the miracle workers but by those who prepared the way.
Whatever your course… STAY IT… For the Glory of God. You have value.
