TEXT: John 3:22-30

James Denny said, "You can never at the same time convince people that you are a great preacher and that Jesus is a great Savior."
John chapter 3 brings John the Baptist back on the scene temporarily. He is continuing his ministry of preaching and baptizing, but his ministry is on the decline. He has fulfilled his purpose in God's plan to introduce the Messiah to the Jewish people and to prepare the hearts of many for the kingdom of God.
However, as we saw yesterday, some of John's disciples did not view it this way. They were envious of the ministry of Jesus who had begun preaching and baptizing with His disciples. Jesus' ministry was growing in prominence while John's had begun to fade. When John's disciples inquired about this issue with their leader, John let them know that  everything was as it should be. He reminded them, "Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him."
