Encountering the Word — John 3:27-20

“The Lamb of God, John the Baptist and Andrew” (detail) by Ottavio Vannini (1585-c. 1643) [Public domain]

John answered, “No one can receive anything except what is given him from heaven. You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but I have been sent before him. He 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 full. He must increase, but I must decrease.” (John 3:27-30)
