John 1:29-30 (NIV)  The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!

This is the one I meant when I said, ‘A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.
Is it not amazing to think how God works? He sent John ahead of Jesus to give the people a man that openly admits to not be Christ when asked. How many people do you think would do the same? You know who I mean, the ones that live the spotlight on them. People would flock that person, but John was obedient to God and announced Jesus as the lamb of God who takes the worlds sin away! God gives us instructions, it’s up to us to listen and follow.
