He must become greater. . .


March 30, 2008

He must become greater; I must become less.
-- John 3:30

For John the Baptist, this ultimate formula for greatness did
not take many words. What's your formula? Paul told the Galatians
that a similar formula was needed for them (Galatians 4:19). He
told the Colossians that this is what he expended every ounce of
his energy to have happen in the lives of Christians (Colossians
1:28-29). Paul told the Corinthians that this was what the Spirit
was doing in their lives (2 Corinthians 3:18). So, don't you think
that maybe this is the real formula for your life?

Dear Father in heaven, in my heart and in my life may Jesus
become greater and I become less. In Jesus' name I ask it. Amen.
