Approval Ratings

April 16, 2009

Great insight from Ray Ortland:

“I try to please everyone in everything I do, not seeking my own advantage.” 1 Corinthians 10:33

“Am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.” Galatians 1:10

When Paul faced a choice between pleasing himself and pleasing others, he pleased others.

When he faced a choice between pleasing others and pleasing Christ, he pleased Christ.

    Nice! I’m so glad Jesus didn’t choose to please Jesus in Gethsemane.
