Chi Rho Reflection for the Week of June 25, 2006
- Chi Rho Reflection for the Week of June 25, 2006
As one of the on-going ministries of Chi Rho
Press, here is a selection from our book of daily
devotions, "Living as the Beloved: One Day at a
Time," by the Rev. Dr. Sandra Bochonok.
Please read the Scripture passage and Dr. Bochonok's
meditation. We hope you will be blessed.
Thank you for forwarding this to your friends.
Greater than John the Baptist!
"Truly, I say to you, among those born of women there
has risen no one greater than John the Baptist; yet
they who are least in the kingdom of heaven are
greater than he."
After John's disciples are gone, Jesus begins teaching
(Matthew 11:7-19). There is much to ponder. John the
Baptist is God's honored prophet sent to announce the
Messiah's coming. He was God's very special messenger
and worthy of great honor, not imprisonment. Then
Jesus said something astonishing. Even the least in
heaven is greater than John the Baptist.
Sometimes we doubt our value to Christ. He loved and
respected John the Baptist. John was a spiritual giant
and great prophet. He has a very special place in
heaven. Yet we too, have enormous value to God.
God, thank you for valuing us. Help us have the faith
of John the Baptist.
Grace and peace,
Chi Rho Press
