John 10:41 (KJV) True Greatness

John 10:41 (KJV)
And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true.

Jesus said that John was the greatest born of woman and yet John the Baptist performed no miracles. His greatness is found in this, “…all things that John spake of this man were true.”

True greatness is not to be found in doing:

  • Great things
  • Impressive things or
  • Notable things

True greatness is speaking truth about Jesus Christ.

Notice, concerning John the Baptist, that it was Jesus, not the people, who called Him great. The people’s only comment about John the Baptist dealt with what he said about Jesus.  If this be the case of us we do well.

Let God ascribe whatever greatness He pleases upon us. Let men say only that whatever we say about Jesus is true.
