Mark 1:7 Meaning and Commentary

Mark 1:7

And preached, saying, there cometh one mightier than I after
me
From whence it appears, that John was a preacher of Jesus Christ; of the dignity of his person, the excellency of his office, and the nature and importance of his work:

the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and
unloose;
expressing the great veneration he had for him, and the great sense he had of his own unworthiness, to be concerned in the lowest and meanest service of life for him; and that he was far from being worthy of the high honour done him, to be his messenger and forerunner; (See Gill on Matthew 3:11).

Mark 1:7 In-Context

6 John wore clothes made of camel's hair, with a leather belt around his waist. He ate locusts and wild honey.
7 He announced, "One stronger than I am is coming after me. I'm not even worthy to bend over and loosen the strap of his sandals.
8 I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit."
