John the Baptizer, said this about Jesus in light of John's own "ministry",
He must become greater; I must become less. [John 3:30 NIV]
What would it be like if the cycle of ministry was for those who rise in prominence to disappear into the worshipping body as Jesus is exalted? Decreasing while Jesus increases.
Rather than building ever increasing platforms capable of supporting their egos ministries.
I'm just asking.
