"He must increase, but I must decrease." Unlike mere man, Jesus has no limits. These words spoken by John the Baptist teach us that Jesus came with divine authority over everything. Jesus being from above was above everything. Being sent from God as the Son of God, Jesus had first hand witness to God, He was one with God, He had unlimited access to the Holy Spirit and God granted Him supremacy. After preparing the people for the Lord's arrival, John stepped back and pointed them to Jesus.
Between the rising of the sun and its setting, time is quickly slipping away. People need to hear the saving news of Jesus. Who will tell them? Let us like John, prepare people for the arrival of Jesus, the King. He is coming back! As John did, let us too step back and give the glory to Jesus.
Our sins have separated us from God, yet God loved us so much that He gave us Jesus, His only Son, to die in our place so that we might live. Our story is just a tiny fragment in the big picture. It is God's story, much more than our story, that all need to hear so that they might come to saving faith.
