We become Less

John 3:30. He must become more important while I become less important.”

We are very important to ourselves. Our natural trait is to put our needs, our wants and our desires before those of anyone else. Maturing spiritually is a slow, day by day process. Our goal is to be one with God. To get there we must learn to put Him before us. He must become greater to us than we are to ourselves. John the baptizer had the right idea. He knew he must fade into the background as Jesus increased in the lives of people. How do we fade when His Holy Spirit works through us? Our question is do we take the credit or do we give the credit to God? Do we seek to follow God’s directives and timing or do we only follow His after we find ours don’t work? God is far greater than we are. Let us remember and acknowledge.
