Message of the Day: He Must Increase and I Must Decrease

Courtesy: Bible Gateway

He must increase and I must decrease” (John 3:30, CEB), were the last words that we have from John the Baptist. He went on to imprisonment, suspense, martyrdom, while Jesus grew in popular favor up to his passion and death.

While Jesus and his disciples were preaching and baptizing in Judea, John the Baptist was spending the closing days of his ministry preaching and baptizing further north, in the region of the Jordan Valley. Some of John’s disciples were becoming jealous of Jesus’ popularity, and John had to rebuke them. he reminded them that his work was only to prepare the way for Jesus. That work was now finished. John was like the friend of bridegroom who made the necessary preparations for a wedding, but withdrew once the bridegroom arrived (John 3:25-30). The purpose of John’s ministry is to point men to him. When that is done his work is done. He came not to form his own movement.

Let us emulate John’s attitude!
