John the Baptist was not an exquisite and distinguished preacher, but he had received the Word of the Lord. His character was marked by integrity and humility; he always pointed people away from himself and towards Christ. This is what made him so significant in preparing the way for Jesus. Like John the Baptist, those who preach the Gospel on a regular basis need to realize that they are only servants through whom people come to believe.
