God: needs to increase…
John 3:30 (KJV) “He must increase, but I must decrease”.
In life we have a duty to be answerable to someone above us; no matter what level we are at in life, there is a responsibility within us to be accountable and even so to take it a bit further, our ultimate liability is to hold God as our Father: His will, His way.
In our reading today we see the culmination of John the Baptist’s ministry: his time or his job was at an end and the one he proclaimed took His place in the scheme of things.
We as followers of Jesus needs to be aware when our time to be seen has passed and let Him be the visible one.
We need to know when to decrease: learn it beloved.
