Decreasing Ourselves so Christ may increase
As the New Year approaches, we are bombarded with messages about how to "improve ourselves." The pressure is on to make this year, the year in which we give the best version of ourselves. However, while maximizing our gifts and talents can be a God-honoring endeavor, Scripture also calls us to a level of self-forgetfulness that lifts Christ to His rightful place in our hearts (John 3:30). In "decreasing" ourselves, we leave room for Christ in us to increase, making us into the version of ourselves that God desires. Listen to Pastor Brandon Remy as he delves into this paradoxical understanding of the best version of ourselves.
