“You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, ‘I am not the Christ, but I have been sent before him.’ The one who has the bride is the bridegroom. The friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly at the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is now complete. He must increase, but I must decrease” – The true mark of Christian maturity is when those who view the believer’s life see more of Christ and less of the Christian as time goes on (and not the other way around as unfortunately so many demonstrate).
