John 3:30 “HE must increase, but I must decrease!”
The Measure FROM Man!
Can one’s involvement and walk
with JEHOVAH be noticed by
Can their zeal be labeled
as “highest” then…if absent
of GODly comparison?
Truth be told, Growth in CHRIST
is shown surely…when sacrificed
steps follow HIS without question!
Without Hesitation, delay nor complaint…so are those committed and known as HIServants!
So sum up your life by those times spent with JESUS; gauge moments of Time by HIS presence — displayed.
Thus if filled is your record with few interactions, then great is your leaning towards faithless Self.
Consequently “the measure FROM man” HE expects, finds us always in need of HIM… desperately so!
As HIServant with you… always wholly dependent on HIS presence and always decreasing so that HE increases in our lives all the more,
Devotional: Romans 12:3 “For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as GOD has dealt to each one a measure of faith!”
Ephesians 4:11-16 “And HE HIMSELF gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of CHRIST,
13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the SON of GOD, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of CHRIST;
14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into HIM WHO is the head — CHRIST…
16 from WHOM the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.”
Our job and responsibility is to demonstrate the measure of our assigned worth by GOD…to the masses.
We do so by DECREASING! The measure of our Zeal then is by what positively unequal ratio we walk through this life desperately dependent on HIM versus ourselves!
HE > me!!
Amen and amen!
