He must increase, but I must decrease.
The saying was declared by John the Baptist, when being interrogated concerning Jesus Christ. And how these words must really daily permeate our whole being again and again. How they must control our thinking, if we must always enjoy the evident manifestation of the supernatural of God in our life, just as God has determined for us in Christ Jesus.
This is it, the more you are daily yielded to Jesus Christ, the more the Name of Jesus Christ will be power-commanding in your mouth and life. The Name of Jesus Christ is surely above all names, people, kings, presidents, nations, continents, spirits, devils, sicknesses, situations, weapons of war of all kinds, hoodlums, kidnappers, terrorists, gods/deities, religions, just name it, both in this world and in that which is to come. But this Name can only sufficiently and effectively work in your mouth, in your life and through your life, to the extent that you have been surrendered to the lordship of Jesus Christ.
KJV:Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
KJV:For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
Beloved, you must see to it that you daily die to self, your own will and things of this world, that the power of Christ may readily flow in and through your life, especially when you call the Name of Jesus Christ.
