"He must increase, but I must decrease." ESV
Many Christians have a tendency to pay more attention to how they measure up as a Christian. They may compare themselves to other Christians and attempt to align their lives with them. Our Christian journey is not about us! It is about the Lordship of Jesus Christ and bringing others to Him. If we focus on Jesus Christ and seeking to be more like Him, our walk will take on His likeness and others will follow. That is our call in this world.
Lord, forgive us for getting focused on ourselves and how we are doing as Christians. We know we are to exam ourselves, but we know that seeking You and You alone is the answer to being full of Your Spirit. Help us to keep our eyes on You, so that our footsteps will take the shape of Yours. Keep us from our worry about how we are doing. Let us be so in love with You that we become magnets for You without doing anything but seeking Your face. We pray in Your name, Amen.
