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

The desire to be important is inbred in us. We want to be the one who knows, tells, gets praised, etc. it takes a loving, humble person to step back and let another be in the spotlight. John had crowds coming to him. He had many followers. When his followers became jealous over the amount of people following Jesus, John said it was time for Hume to step into the background and time for Jesus to be up front. It’s hard for us to share the spotlight let alone step out of it. We like to take credit for the good acts and ideas. We like to be the one God uses. We are “our” individual goal oriented rather than God’s goal through His collective body (all believers) oriented. Let us learn to enjoy contributing while recognizing God is really the One Who makes all things possible using all believers in the way He chooses and equips.
