I must become less

John 3

 30 He must become greater; I must become less.”

In John 3 when John is baptizing and the people started questioning why everyone was going to Jesus to be baptized.  And John basically told them “I am not the Messiah and I was sent ahead of him. I wait and listen for him and his voice fills me with joy and now I am complete.  So He must become greater and I must become less.”

I wonder how much greater my life would have been if I had really waited, listened and let His voice fill me with joy so that I would be complete oh so many years ago?  I wonder?  If He had become greater and I had become less.  How much greater would my life had been?

In verse 34 it says “for the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit. The Father loves the Son and has placed everything in his hands. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life,”

So for today I know that my life is greater only because He is the greatest.  Making myself less does not mean, making myself unimportant or invaluable.  Because in the sight of God, I am valuable. Proverbs 3:15 [Full Chapter] She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her.   I will stand up and be bold for Him and still be humble of self.  Be proud to be called His!  It simply puts Him on the front burner in my world not me.  And when I do that, God sees and blesses me even the more.

So When asked, “Who is greater?” What will you answer?

Lord, I come to You just as I am.  Help me to be the best me I can be for You.  Amen!
