God asks us to no longer see ourselves. To deny ourselves. Just as John the Baptizer spoke – He must increase and I must decrease. At the end, John decreased to a dungeon and finally to his death. We, likewise, are called to disappear. It is only when we disappear that Christ can truly be seen. And where the genuine love for our neighbor can be born.
