Less and less.

I read this yesterday. Great word as we head into work week. What are our motives? Who are we trying to glorify? Him or ourselves?

He [Jesus] must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less. (NLT) ( John 3:30 )

It’s so natural for us to focus on our accomplishments and want to bolster our image. The problem with this thinking is it’s selfish. When we focus on humbling ourselves, we step aside and let Christ shine. How can we become less important? A few steps can make a difference such as seeking others’ opinions or not being afraid to make mistakes. In addition, allowing Jesus to become a greater influence in our lives increases His importance to us. Open yourself up to increasing God and decreasing yourself.
