"He must become greater; I must become less." John 3:30
We are called to a radical faith which is counter to everything the American Dream teaches you and I. Passages like this one go against popular culture and social norms. Most of the time we are worried about ourselves, how to make more money and how to take care of "me."
Christ calls us to become less; forfeiting our lives to Him. This surrender comes at a price: we give our hearts to those who will crush it, we move hundreds of miles from loved ones, we sacrifice earth treasures for Him.
Christ wants less of you and I and more of Him. Where do you and I stand? Let Him rule today; no one else. More of Him, less of Me.
