A truck passed me doing nearly 70 miles an hour. I watched a little bird swoop down behind his trailer, and fly in the draft of air behind the trailer. I didn’t know they could fly so fast. I didn’t know they could be so bold. I didn’t know they were wise enough to choose their toys. But now I do.
I can be more than a man. I can be bold. I can be wise enough to choose my Master. For I will follow behind him in his blazing train; caught up in His Majesty, which he leaves along “The Way”.
The truck went by with good speed. So Christ Jesus walked by John the Baptist in the same way. Then we see John play in the Holiness of Christ like the bird in the draft of the trailer.
“This is the one I meant when I said, ‘A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.'”
Let us too be wise.
By His Grace
