Verse of the day:
He must become greater; I must become less. (John 3:30)
John the Baptist left us this nugget of truth of which we should live by as well. “He must become greater; I must become less.” John 3:30 Others have said it this way. “It’s not all about me, it’s all about Him.” We must constantly be pointing others to Christ, not self. All we do and all we say should be to further His kingdom and exalt His name, not ours.
I like what John the Baptist says in verse 31 too. He says “The one who comes from above is above all….” In fact, he thought it was so important that he says it again. “The one who comes from Heaven is above all.” Jesus is already the greatest. We make Him greater when we help make Him greater in other people’s lives. We need to do like John the Baptist did and point them to “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). It was John the Baptist’s mission, but it’s our mission too. Make Jesus greater in someone’s life today.
