He Must Increase

Michael Beck

“He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.” (John 16:14)

I was once afraid of being called a “Jesus freak.” I now gladly own the title. The world doesn’t need any more religious fanatics. But the world, and the church, could use many more Jesus fanatics.

Let’s stop making things about ourselves – our churches, our movement, our success in the world. Let’s be as caught up in the person of Christ as Paul was, and the Holy Spirit is. To Him be glory, honor, and power in the church, world without end. John got it right: “He must increase. I must decrease.”
