Humility before Jesus 

In my opinion, what John the Baptizer said of himself in comparison to Jesus Christ should be shared by all children of God, 

“He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled. He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:29-30).

It did not bother John that Jesus was becoming more popular. John was happy to decrease as Jesus increased.
