“EULOGY FOR A GREAT MAN”

Luke 7:18-28

  • John, the baptizer has given to us our 2021 theme, as a church family:

“HE MUST INCREASE!”

He has also become an example for us to follow:

  • Identity
  • Purpose
  • Focus

1.) JOHN’S IMPRISONMENT. Matthew 11:1-2; 14:3-5; 4:12-13

2.) JOHN’S QUESTION. Luke 7:18-20

  • “Are you the one who was to come, or should we expect someone else?”

3.) JESUS’ ANSWER. Luke 7:21-23 | Isaiah 61:1-3 | Isaiah 35:3-6 | Luke 4:18-19

4.) JESUS’ EULOGY. Luke 7:24-28

  • No one greater than John
  • The “bridge” prophet
  • The least in the Kingdom is greater Hebrews 11:39-40 | 1 Peter 1:10-12 | John 14:12; 16:7

Lives of great men all remind us we can make our lives sublime.

And departing, leave behind us footprints in the sand of time.

- Longfellow
