A Mere Stagehand

As he preached he said, “The real action comes next: The star in this drama, to whom I’m a mere stagehand, will change your life. - Mark 1 v 7

Unfortunately in my experience of church leadership to many of us have though of ourselves as the star of the show. God has only had one gift to this world and His name was Jesus not Billy. John the Baptist had it right when he described himself as a "mere stagehand".

Wikipedia says A stagehand is a person who works backstage or behind the scenes. Their duties include setting up the scenery, lights, sound, props, rigging, and special effects for a production.

John the Baptist was recognised by Jesus as the greatest man that had lived and he saw himself as a stagehand. So to be part of the greatest show in History I think I am more than happy to be a stagehand.

If I can fetch and carry and add something to Jesus production I will be more than happy.
