John 1:27 He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.

Jesus said that there was no greater person on the earth than John the Baptist.

Matthew 11:11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

John was even greater than Moses, whom the whole Jewish nation revered as the great Prophet of God, and who gave them the law of God.

John was the only person in all of history to be baptised by the Holy Ghost BEFORE HE WAS BORN.

Luke 1:15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb.

John had no children, no wife, served the lord from his youth, and was Jesus’ cousin.

Luke 1:36 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.

John was called of God to do one task that would last all his life. He was to go before God’s chosen Messiah, proclaim the day of the lord, and preach repentance.

Luke 1:76 And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;

Luke 1:77 To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins,

This great man of God, considered himself unworthy to undo Jesus’ shoelaces.

Kind of makes you wonder when these self-righteous people rant and rave about others not giving THEM the respect they think THEY deserve.

Yet Jesus, who was so much higher and better than any living human being, became a servant to pay for OUR WRETCHED SINS, so that we could be free and saved to inherit God’s kingdom.

Jesus became the least in the kingdom of God so that He could become the greatest FOR OUR SAKE.

I do not pay too much attention to those foolish people who misuse the words ‘pride’ and ‘respect’ yet ignore the truth those redeemed of God are speaking.

The one who we are not worthy to behold, has cleansed His people for His service and the world’s fools ignore their words of truth and cry for us to ‘respect’ them. I don’t think so.

Psalm 14:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

Thou we are unworthy, Jesus will have mercy on those who will repent and humble themselves.

Psalm 78:39 For he remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.

For the rest, who puff themselves up and think they are worthy of respect, honour, and pride.

Psalm 1:4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

Psalm 1:5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

Psalm 1:6 For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

I keep saying this over and over again but it is the only truth that will save you; Jesus is the ONLY WORTHY PERSON IN HEAVEN AND EARTH.

All the rest of us are just plain UNWORTHY TO UNTIE JESUS’ SHOELACES!
