Christians, especially leaders, it’s dangerous to draw people to ourselves… desiring to increase in the esteem of others to attract more people.
It’s not the Spirit of God motivating us when we want to promote ourselves, it’s the spirit of the world.
We desire to decrease and for the Lord to increase.
We’re called rather to humble ourselves before the Lord.
What we want is men and women to be drawn to Jesus – not to ourselves.
