The Baptist’s model, “He must increase, I must decrease,” is not easy to follow. We all know how much easier it is to make gods, as it were, of our ideas, our needs, our reputation and our comfort.
Yet we all know the emptiness in this kind of living. The false prophets of our society will lead us into believing that this way is the thinking of the world today.
My friends, we all know the importance of relying on the Lord rather than on our own emptiness and weakness. Christianity might not be the popular way of living; but, then again, who said it ever should be?
