God is not afraid of your greatness! He created it. I believe the phrase “More of Him and less of me” has been misused and misunderstood.

John the Baptist lived in the fullness of ALL he was created to be. He knew his purpose was to point men and women to Jesus. When he said, “He must become greater; I must become less” it was because the One he was preparing the way for had arrived on the scene. John knew there was a shift taking place and that his mission of being a forerunner for Jesus was complete.

I believe some people read these words and think that we elevate Jesus by diminishing who we are. The exact opposite is true. We elevate Jesus when we walk in the fullness of who He created us to be. We are called to represent God to the world. To represent Him we must become like Him.

He is glorified through a person becoming all they were created to be.
