John 3

John 3:30 “He must increase, but I must decrease.”

If I understand the story behind this statement, a few of Johns diciples come to him telling him that Jesus was preaching and baptizing and that all men were coming to Jesus, and because of that most likely John was losing most of his diciples as well. I don’t think John the Baptist resonded the way his diciples expected, upon hearing that everyone was turning to Jesus, John basically said: perfect. John recognized that it wasn’t about him having the biggest ministry, it wasn’t about his name getting known, it wasn’t anything about himself getting magnified, in-fact he says the exact opposite he said “He (Christ) must increase, but I must decrease.”

--Father would you show me my need to decrease… and would you make it my hearts desire for you to increase… Help me to cheerfully obey everything that you have commanded me to do… Thank you for Jesus for dying for my sins…
