“ He [Jesus] must increase, but I must decrease.”- John 3:30
Having fulfilled his role, John was content to see the crowds follow Jesus: He must increase, but I must decrease. In the Christian life, the first and overriding priority is not the preeminence of one’s position, but the performance of one’s assignment- magnifying Christ. There is no room in the Christian community for pride in one’s popularity or personal accomplishments. There are no superstars in the kingdom of God. Only those who obey Him and serve Him .
