Rusty Gilliam: The Spirit Without Measure (John 3:30-36)

Rusty Gilliam, pastor of Cross Timber Baptist Church in Burleson, Texas, considers what it means that God gives the Spirit without measure. He explains the greater context of John’s statement that Jesus must increase and John must decrease. The following verses describe how Jesus is greater than John in at least five ways. In consideration of Jesus’ greatness, Gilliam challenges his congregation to give more room to the Spirit’s work in their lives.
