A High Calling May Require a High Price

John the Baptist had a high calling - John 1:6 "There was a man sent from God, whose name was John." John 1:23 - "He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord,..."

John the Baptist paid a high price - Matthew 14:10 "And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison."

John got the attention of the people (Matthew 3:1-6; Luke 3:1-14); turned their attention to Jesus (John 1:29-37; Luke 3:15-18; Matthew 3); and got out of the way (John 3:30; Luke 3:16-20).
