He Must Increase
by Randy Chambers, 2009-12-31
John 3:30 KJV: He must increase, but I must decrease.
John the Baptist had a special work wherein he would be the one who came to prepare the
way for the one yet to come. Simply put, Johns ministry pointed to Jesus. He did not
consider his ministry something whereby he would get attention or glory for
himselfit was all about Jesus. As John the Baptists disciples questioned John
regarding the work that Christ was doing and the attention it was drawing; John simply
reminded them for what purpose he had come. Just as John did, it is ours to do today and
everyday: to point the way to Christ, and to see that our lives increase the glory to
Jesus above anything we would ever gain for ourselves.
