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

John 3:30 He must increase, but I must decrease.

When you share the Lord with others,
See that He is on display;
For the world to see Him clearly,
We must not get in the way. —Sper

2 Corinthians 10:17 He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.

Jeremiah 9:24“Let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the LORD, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight,” says the LORD.

Psalm 34:2-3 Let my soul boast in the LORD; let the afflicted{humble, discouraged, poor in spirit} hear and rejoice. Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt His name together.
