Day 19 - John 3:30
He must become greater,
I must become less.
Such a simple concept. But so incredibly hard to apply!
We are a selfish people. Even when we are "trying" to live righteous lives, we still try to hold onto things. Why is it so hard to understand, that we can only become more like Jesus, when we leg go of more of ourselves?
Jesus is our hope! If "we" are so large in our own life - how can anyone see Jesus. How can we show those who are in such desperate need of hope........... the one true hope?
Jesus is the message! When we become less, the message of Jesus is apparent. When we find the real Jesus, we realize that He can live inside of us. But for Jesus to possess who we are, and help us become what he wants us to be, we must allow ourselves to diminish.
Simple word, difficult to grasp!
