OUR PLACE IN THE CHRISTIAN WORLD

When spiritual enlightenment dawns in human consciousness, the human element decreases. John the Baptist may have recognized this fact when he declared, in referring to Christ Jesus (John 3:30), "He must increase, but I must decrease."

Humanly speaking, John was a good man. The Master said of him (Matt. 11:11), "Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist;" and he added, "Notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he." Jesus drew attention to the value of human goodness, but showed that spirituality, even in small degree, must transcend it.
