People who can selflessly set aside personal ambition and genuinely seek the good of others, have an attitude that pleases God. If out New Year resolution is that Jesus must become more in our lives, it means that we will become less – that we will become selfless like Jesus and seek to make an important difference in the lives of others.
 
This is how John the Baptist reacted when the crowds left him and began following Jesus. John said, “Jesus must become greater; I must become less.” (John 3:22 – 30.
 
At the baptism of Jesus we are given an epiphany of who the Son of God, the Light of the world, really is. God the Father, sending the Spirit to fill his Son declares to us that Christ is his beloved Son, our Saviour and Redeemer.
 
What made John the Baptist to become a Christ follower not only in words, but in his actions and ministry?
He saw the glory of Jesus and he was happy to see Someone else elevated above himself with the purpose to serve our glorious God in the best possible way.
 
Do we understand what this humility is that enables us to bow humble hearts before the Lord of glory and enter his service unconditionally? To let Jesus be everything and we becoming his servants?
 
To truly live our confession of faith that says that Jesus is King and Head of his church, which means that he must become more, greater, he must increase, always!
 
All we do is to serve him, obey him, be the church he wants us to be and be the Christians he wants us to be.
If we can forget about ourselves a bit more in 2022, we will be able to do things others will remember and some will at least try to follow our example.
 
And more importantly, when we love ourselves less and Jesus more, we will accomplish things that God will remember for all eternity.
