You Must Become Less

John 3: 30 He must become greater; I must become less. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) website reports camp attendance of over 85,000 youth, and nearly 13,000 huddles occurring in 47 countries around the world.  In fact, many reading this devotional probably have been, or are involved in FCA activities.  While FCA is well known […]
