Decrease So God Can Increase

“It's not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential.”  -Bruce Lee

We live in a culture of increase: more food, friends and fun—for me.  Some tell themselves, “If I can just make a little more money and buy a bigger house, then I’ll be happy.”  Pleasure of course in itself isn’t wrong, but for some, their pursuit of happiness is hedonistic.  As Christians we must remember every day that when there is less of us that makes more room for Jesus.  God then fills you with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

He must increase, but I must decrease (John 3: 30, NKJV).
