Less of Me More of Him: A Mission Trip Devotional Journal


“He must become greater; I must become less.” (John 3:30)

When John stepped aside to give Jesus center stage, he was saying in effect, “My life is not about my popularity, power or success! My life is all about HIM, Jesus, the Savior of the world. He must become greater; I must become less.” The mission trip you are about to go on is less about you, and more about HIM. And you’ll have a great trip if you Become less self-centered and much more Christ-centered. May you discover in the days ahead that less is really more! Less of you will mean more of HIS peace, HIS generosity, HIS kindness, HIS humility, HIS courage, HIS unconditional love and grace. Your mission trip will be a life-changing experience if you will let yourself become more and more like Jesus Christ.
