this is one of my favourite photos of myself and it is titled “Hebiggermeless” based on the verse in John 3.30 where John the Baptist, talking about Jesus, says, “He must become greater; I must become less.”

it is the essence of Christianity and Jesus-following and problems always erupt when we forget that and this picture helps keep me grounded by reminding me how pathetically small i am compared to something relatively tiny that God spoke into being.

He is bigGER.

and prompts the chant/song i often use when i go speak at places:

God is Bigger than my box
He’s Bigger than my theology
He’s Bigger than my understanding…
He’s Bigger than me.

if all people who claimed to be Christian lived with this in mind, the world would be completely transformed.
