"He must become greater; I must become less." NIV
"He must increase, but I must decrease." KJV
Our Christian journey here on earth is a process of Jesus becoming more and of us becoming less. That does not mean we think less of ourselves, putting ourselves down until we see ourselves as filthy trash. It means we think about ourselves less; our own wants and needs. Our thoughts and actions are more about Jesus and what He desires from us. If we cannot see this happening in our lives, we need to seek the Lord in prayer and get our hearts right.
Heavenly Father, we are trusting in You to help us think of ourselves less often and to think of You more. Give us spiritual sight to see if this is happening in our lives and give us greater hunger to do so. In Jesus' name, Amen.
