The Less of Me

"He must become greater; I must become less." (John 3:30)

As faithful Christians, we know that everything we do is purposed for the one and only big mission in life - proclaiming the Good News to the whole earth.

It doesn't matter where we come from. Doesn't matter who we were, or how, or what grave mistakes we did in the past. What matters is the now.

Who are we now? We are of Christ. We are loved, accepted, cherished, treasured, understood and cared for. We are freed from the chains of the world, released from the prison of our sin and insatiable desires. We are to be who we are in Christ. Full of potentials, learning and growing in His footsteps, personally mentored and guided by the Spirit He has given freely.

We want to look past our shoulders and be able to see that we are greater, stronger, wiser, smarter, humbler, gentler from who we used to be, because we have a great God. We want to be able to tell the world that we are a changed man, because God's power has rested upon us and this unexplainable Spirit has breathed new life into our soul.

Let the Lord be greater. Let the human factor in us be less.
