Read – John 3:27-30, Matthew 11:11
Who should you make great? It may be your friend or anybody, find out who the person is and make him/her great. In the book of John chapter 3, John was making Jesus great and you can see Jesus’ testimony about him in Matthew 11, He said “Of all that are born of women, none is greater than John the Baptist.” What was inside Jesus, John and Joseph? Joseph was a slave, he had every reason to be bitter, yet he was working for his master to be greater and more successful. He was not thinking of keeping money for himself.
Joseph did not worry about Pharaoh until he met Pharaoh neither did he worry about the butler until they met. Joseph recognized the butler and he recognized the time that he should be making someone great. Look at Caleb and Joshua: Caleb did not give Joshua trouble after Joshua succeeded Moses just as Joshua did not give Moses any trouble while following him as his assistant. Caleb could have said, “Listen to me Joshua, we were together with Moses.” but he didn’t strive with Joshua.
Mordecai made Esther great and out of the greatness of Esther, his own greatness came out. Esther was his niece, the daughter of his brother who had died and he took her as his own daughter, ministered to her, trained her and invested in her without holding back. Jesus came and made the Father great, therefore, the Father gave him authority that is above all. The Holy Ghost has come and continues to make Jesus great, no wonder Jesus said for anyone that sins against the Holy Ghost, there will be no forgiveness. So I ask once again, who should you be making great now?
PRAYER: Lord, show me who I am to make great at every phase and sphere of life I find myself in Jesus’ name. Amen!
