All Things Are from God
And they came unto John, and said unto him, Rabbi, he that was with thee beyond Jordan, to whom thou barest witness, behold, the same baptizeth, and all men come to him. John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven. (John 3:26-27 KJV)
God is the factor behind every accomplishment, every blessing, and God has a hand in the outcome of our trials and tribulations.
The Apostle John was quick to point out to those in his midst that it was not because of anything he had done to earn this position as Rabbi. He was busy preaching the truth and baptizing many but this spiritual success came at the mercy and favor of God rather that because of anything he had done.
John was busy about putting his knowledge of God into opportunities for reaching those around him with truth.
