Nancy Leigh DeMoss: All of us have a natural desire to build our reputation.
“I’m trying to get my work out there—build a name for myself.”
“It’s like brand recognition, only I’m my own brand.”
Nancy: John the Baptist challenges our normal way of thinking. In his humble spirit he said, “The one who is coming after me, Christ the Messiah, I am not worthy to untie His sandals. He must increase, and I must decrease.”
Is that your heart attitude? Do you want Jesus to be exalted? Do you want to increase His reputation?
Trying to build a name for ourselves is frustrating because we can never do enough. But when we serve for God’s glory and focus on making His name great—that’s when we find true fulfillment.
