May we also look to Jesus in faith the way John the Baptist did!

"Looking in faith to the Redeemer, John had risen to the height of self-abnegation. He sought not to attract men to himself, but to lift their thoughts higher and still higher, until they should rest upon the Lamb of God. He himself had been only a voice, a cry in the wilderness. Now with joy he accepted silence and obscurity, that the eyes of all might be turned to the Light of life." {The Desire of Ages, page 179, paragraph 4}

May God bless you as you fix your focus on Christ and let Him give you His grace for this day! As Jesus abides in our hearts, He imparts to us all of the Holy Spirit’s character traits, so that we rejoice in His gentleness and meekness! “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law” (Galatians 5:22-23). Not one of these precious fruits of the Holy Spirit will be lacking in our Christian experience as we keep our eyes steadfastly fixed upon Christ in continual surrender of our whole heart to Him!
"When we live by faith on the Son of God, the fruits of the Spirit will be seen in our lives; not one will be missing." {The Desire of Ages, 676.4}
