There is no such a thing as an indispensable man.
Who do you think was the greatest prophet of God in his own day? Temptation would lead us to say Elijah—that archetype of prophets. But a man came right after him who had a
double portion of Elijah’s spirit—a man very much worth studying—whose name was Elisha. But even Elisha was not the indispensable man. Eventually, kings seeking Elisha found him
fallen sick of his sickness whereof he died.
John the Baptist was a great man. Jesus said no man born of a woman was a greater prophet than John. He was not the indispensable man, but he knew who was—that man would increase, and John would diminish—and the dance of a little cutie ultimately led to John’s death.
The greatest writer of the New Testament may be the apostle Paul, but Paul knew better than anyone that he was not an indispensable man. How did he describe the real indispensable man?
