"He must become greater; I must become less." NIV
"He must increase, but I must decrease." KJV
The Christian journey is not one of following rules or being involved in a local church, although these are very good things to do. The real Christian journey is the process of turning control of our entire lives over to the Lord. He becomes more and more the center and master of our lives and we become more and more submissive servants of His will so that He is what the world sees in us.
Heavenly Father, we stand in need of Your grace and power of humility in giving control of our lives over to You. In Jesus' name, Amen.
