The Baptist’s model, He must increase, I must decrease is not easy to follow. We all know how much easier it is to make gods, as it were, of our ideas, our needs, our reputation, our comfort. Yet we all know the emptiness in this kind of living. The decrease of self-concern, the emptying of self-centeredness, and the increase of Christ as the center of one’s life is the secret of an exemplary Christian life.
