Becoming Less

I was reading through the first 3 chapters of John this morning and came across a verse that jumped of the page.

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

Simple but profound words. I know this is the goal, but I fail miserably at allowing him to become greater in my life. There is just so much Levi that needs to become less.

Less sarcasm, less skepticism, less frustration, less defensiveness, less insecurity.

So I will be praying these simple words that scarcely seem to fit in our culture:

Lord, may you become greater and I become less.

I love this....I have been working hard myself on this topic. I found out about your site through a member of Powerline. Dusty and I go there now and we are loving it. For the first time he is getting involved with the youth group and learning so much. I have become the "food fixer" for Wednesday nights for the youth group. I want you to know that what you started at Powerline has not faultered. The kids still talk about you and Heather all the time! Please e-mail me if you get some time..... the kids have forgotten the password for the computer ( they have the user name) and I know that they would love to have a massage from you.
