“You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, ‘I am not the Christ,’ but, ‘I have been sent before Him.’ He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled. He must increase, but I must decrease. He who comes from above is above all; he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. He who comes from heaven is above all.“
The life and ministry of John the Baptist continues to be a great example to all those who embark upon serving in ministry. John’s example is one of confidence and assurance because he knew who he was before Christ. John spoke profoundly when he said, “He must increase, but I must decrease.”
The service we give to God should possess us rather than our possessing it. God is working in and through our lives and as He does, we must keep a light grasp upon what He has us to do for Him. May we be careful to see to it that Christ is exalted and not we ourselves; remember that all that we do here on earth is for Him and His glory.
