The Great Disappearing Act

Posted by Dave Sippel on

A few people have asked me to share the verses that I used in my sermon from November 1st, 2015.

Our text for the sermon was John 3:23-30 (NRSV). The key verse that I focused on was John 3:30. 

"He must increase, but I must decrease." - John 3:30 (NRSV)

I used two other verses as well. Micah 6:8 and Jeremiah 29:7.

  • Micah 6:8 (NIV) - "He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."
  • Jeremiah 29:7(NRSV) - "But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare."


  1. Where have you seen Christ this week? In a friend or relative? Through a song or story?
  2. Do you think that you missed any opportunities to bless someone this week?
  3. How could next week be better than this week? What would progress look like for you?
