I Am Second

“…it’s not about you.”



not about him

not about the baby(!)


someone else




Not about John. It’s about Jesus


“Praise be to the Lord the God of Israel because he has come to his people and redeemed them, he has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David.”

Luke 1:68


Promise fulfilled

Rescue from our enemies   v74


His plan of reversal

His promises are kept

Responding to God’s glory


“And you my child will be called a prophet of the most high. For you... will go on before the Lord. To prepare the way for him.” 

Luke 1:76


“You, my child... will go before the Lord.
To prepare the way for him.”


Salvation from our enemies

Salvation from our sin


Not. About. Me.

All about Him
