He Must Increase…

“He must increase, but I must decrease.”

– John 3:30

 

John the Baptist had a powerful ministry preparing the path for Jesus.  He had many followers and disciples, but he was aware of his role and the deity of Christ.  Although Christ regarded him as the greatest man ever born (Matt 11:11), John knew that he was nothing apart from and in comparison to Jesus, so he purposefully sought to humble himself in order to magnify Christ.  We must daily die to ourselves, deny ourselves, and let the Holy Spirit reign through our lives.
