He Must Increase, As I Must Decrease

When I start out with Jesus,

in my heart.

I put him above everything.

I put him above everyone,

but I did not give up,

my immediate lifestyle.

I was dangerously close,

to putting myself before Jesus.

Now I know,

that He must increase,

as I myself decrease.

I must humble myself more,

as I exalt the Lord more.

I must let the space grow larger,

between Christ Jesus and me,

while putting Him in front.

That way, no dark force can separate us.

Nothing can come between us.

The more in front,

Christ Jesus is,

the better that I can see Him -

the better that I can follow Him -

the more I know,

that I am on the right path,

and the more I know,

that I am doing the Lord's work.

    What a selfish & sad piece!

    “ I put him above everything.

    I put him above everyone”

    If you want room for Jesus that’s fine but above everything & everyone! A sad existence indeed!

      It is a free existence indeed my friend. One cannot fully appreciate Jesus unless they put Him first in their life. Don't think that Jesus wants to keep us back. He wants nothing but freedom for us. Having Him and putting Him first in our life is truely liberating.

      Good Evening ZION ~ Thanks for this Poem ~ AWESOME. Our interpretation is that as we grow more Christlike ~ in our everyday lives (not just on a Sunday) people will see less of us (we must decrease !) and more of JESUS ( HE MUST INCREASE !) ~ AMEN. Thnaks for caring !

      Blessings & Peace to You & Yours
