John The Baptist had many followers, multitudes came to hear him speak, and most of them wanted to repent and be baptized by him. Even his followers wanted to be loyal to him instead of JESUS. But at the height of his success, he never fell to the admiration of the world; he never wavered in his Love and Passion for JESUS. He "stood up for JESUS and made no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts" (Romans 13:14). Do we STAND UP FOR JESUS in the "good times"? Does our Love and Passion for JESUS waiver when we hear "how good we are" and there are no tragedies or persecutions attacking us? Don't we know that after we experience GREAT SPIRITUAL AND WORLDLY victories we are more vulnerable to sin? When we STAND FOR JESUS we have HIS POWER and there are NO TEMPTATIONS. IF WE STAND FOR NOTHING, WE FALL TO EVERYTHING.
