He Must Increase, but I Must Decrease

August 7, 2022 Speaker: Rev. David Senters Series: John's Gospel

Topic: Sermons Verse: John 3:22– 22:26

Q: How do we put to death the sin of pride, coveting, and envying of other people?

A: "He Must Increase, but I Must Decrease," v. 30.

How was John able to say, "He must increase, but I must decrease?" 

1. John rcognized the sovereignty of God for his life, that everything that God gives is a gift.

2. John recognized that he is not the Messiah, the Savior of the church.

3. John understood the joy in simple obedience.

Result: Christ receives all the glory. He is preeminent, absolutely unique; WCF 16.

Application: We must decrease, Christ must increase.
