Jesus Must Increase, I Must Decrease Part 4 (20110630)

Posted on June 30, 2011


“He must become greater; I must become less.” (John 3:30, NIV)

What or who are you constantly reading about, studying about, talking about?  Whatever or whoever it is, that is what is most important to you.  For some folks it is their job, for others their favorite hobby, still others it has something to do with following their favorite sports team.  And for some it is that they are all wrapped up in themselves.  They have a hard time seeing anything other than themselves.

The trouble with all this is that one day all these things are going to pass away.  They will be no more.  Of course you will remain for eternity in either one of two places, heaven or hell.  But, know this, your eternal destiny is largely determined by how well you understand John’s saying, “He must become greater; I must become less.”

An interesting thought is; the less we become, the more we can see.  And what is it that we see?  We see others, and we see Christ.  The greater he becomes in our lives, and the
less we become, the more we will see of the Kingdom of God.

Living Big In Jesus,
