As John the Baptist said, “He must become greater; I must become less” (John 3:30). We desire to do his will not for our own glory, but so that others may see Christ in us. Jesus wants us to let our “light shine before men, that they may see [our] good deeds, and praise [our] Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).
