Many today are all caught up in "my" church, "my" ministry, "my" pastor . . . MY . . . .MY . . . MY indeed! While many people and many churches and many other CHRISTian groups are doing many great and wonderful things, it is never about "us" but rather Him Who has saved us to do the good works (Ephesians 2:10).
Like John the Baptist, we need to realize why we were sent (to make disciples) and by Whom. When our task is completed, we are to step out of the way and move on. The attention is on the One Who died for us, the One Who saves us, and the One Who will redeem us at the Judgement!
Lord, like John, help me to decrease and You increase!
