• “Bare heights of loneliness…a wilderness whose burning winds sweep over glowing sands, what are they to HIM? Even there He can refresh us, even there He can renew us.” – Amy Carmichael

He Must Increase by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 12/19/11

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.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
