"He Must Increase, but I Must Decrease"
We naturally want to be on the winning side. To be the ones who are noticed for our achievements. Rarely does someone dream about being second chair in the orchestra, or the back-up quarterback, or the understudy for a lead role.
That is where our natural thinking must change. If you want to follow Jesus, it means diving to the bottom. It means humbling yourself: giving up your rights, taking no stock in your own good works, and finding your identity in Jesus.
In short, we must echo John the Baptist’s declaration from this week’s preaching passage: “He must increase, but I must decrease.”
Come on Sunday as we consider what it means to magnify and rejoice in Jesus from John 3:22-36. There is no greater joy than delighting in our Savior while pointing others to Him.
See you soon,
