“Winning the Approval of Mankind or of God Almighty?”
Do you think I am trying to make people accept me? No, God is the One I am trying to please. Am I trying to please people? If I still wanted to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ. Galatians 1:10
Many people go through life trying to PLEASE everybody. One thing I have learned right from the start is that you CANNOT PLEASE everybody that may cross your path and enter into a segment of your life. If you try to PLEASE EVERYONE you will soon find out that it is TRULY IMPOSSIBLE. It will only cause you great distress.
The Apostle Paul, in his letter to the believers in Galatia, is telling them that IF they think he is trying to get people to ACCEPT him they are sadly MISTAKEN. To Paul the ONLY ONE whom he was trying to PLEASE and ACCEPT him was the ALMIGHTY GOD. He wasn’t concerned about winning the approval of mankind as much as, winning the approval of God, the ONLY ONE who REALLY MATTERS. The ONLY ONE who we will give an account to at the end of time. The ONE who will determine our destiny throughout eternity.
The Apostle Paul, says that if he still wanted to PLEASE people, he would NOT be a servant of Christ. There is NO WAY that you can PLEASE EVERYBODY and SERVE CHRIST. He is RIGHTEOUS and HOLY, mankind is NOT, unless they have come to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, and have CONFESSED their sins to Him, SEEKING His FORGIVENESS, and BELIEVING with ALL their HEART that Jesus died for them, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for them, before God, then they ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become a GOD PLEASER, and DON’T fret about being a PEOPLE PLEASER. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
