John the “Baptist” sees a transition of fewer people following him in favor of following Jesus. John is happy about this. John taught his students six truths about the Messiah. With clarity, John points out the purpose of Jesus as the Messiah, making a way for those who would believe in Him to have eternal life. Here again, we see the specific purpose of the life of Jesus Christ. If we grow calloused to the spiritual needs of others, we have drifted away from the primary purpose of our Savior.
