“He must become greater; I must become less.” (John 3:30, NIV)
The world wants everything bigger and better. For our technology we want the bigger hard drive, the faster processor, the higher refresh rate; for our cars the more layers the paint, the bigger and more polished wheels, the louder the stereo. Or, maybe its all the clubs, organizations or sports teams we belong to at school. And of course many of us are not willing to forget the clothes. We want to be stylin’ and lookin’ good with the latest fashions. It all adds up to bling, zing and shiny things. And whoever has the most wins; or at least that is what many hip people believe in this world.
But in God’s kingdom, it is different. Jesus must become greater, and we must become less. In God’s kingdom, it is not what we have, but in how we are being transformed to be servants of God and humble brothers and sisters in the family of God. In God’s kingdom it is not about what we have, but it is about who we serve!
Living Big In Jesus,
