The Preacher Who Lost His Congregation

By Charles R. Swindoll


John 3:22–36

John the Baptizer built a following of thousands of people, not to keep them for himself but to point them to Jesus. John's mission as forerunner to Jesus was to clear the way, prepare the way, and get out of the way! Hearing that Jesus' ministry was growing, John humbly replied, “He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less” (John 3:30). Joy comes from obedience, not getting glory.
