John 3:30

AMP … He must increase, but I must decrease. [He must grow more prominent; I must grow less so.]
NLT … He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.
NET … He must become more important while I become less important.

From ODB:

Not I but Christ be honored, loved, exalted;
Not I but Christ be seen, be known, be heard;
Not I but Christ in every look and action;
Not I but Christ in every thought and word.

Oh, to be saved from myself, dear Lord,
Oh, to be lost in Thee,
Oh, that it may be no more I,
But Christ that lives in me.
—Whiddington

    Jesus, let people see
    More of You
    Less of me
    Your salt and light I wish to be –Mt 5:13-16

    Jesus, More of You
    Less of me
    Make me who I’m meant to be
    So people see
    Only Christ living inside of me.

    From ODB:

    Not I but Christ be honored, loved, exalted;
    Not I but Christ be seen, be known, be heard;
    Not I but Christ in every look and action;
    Not I but Christ in every thought and word.

    Oh, to be saved from myself, dear Lord,
    Oh, to be lost in Thee,
    Oh, that it may be no more I,
    But Christ that lives in me.

    From ODB

    I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord. —Philippians 3:8

    Lord, thank You for reminding me of the
    value of knowing You more intimately.
    Help me to keep myself out of the way as
    I pursue a deeper walk with You.
