I can be so guilty of seeking acceptance of men, that I often forget that my life is to please and glorify God!
Every fruit, and every good work I can do, is solely due to the work Christ has done and is doing through me.
Are you guilty of having more fear of men than you have for the Lord?
Do you stand in awe, and reverence of men? Or do you fear, stand in awe of, and reverence the God of Heaven?
Who do you exalt in your life?
Why do you do, what you do?
True discipleship of the Lord revolves around seeking God’s kingdom. It is not seeking respect, reverence, or acceptance of man.
On the same note; are you one to push others to be more concerned with pleasing you? Your endeavors? Your goals? Or do you push, encourage, and challenge others to please the Lord? It is not something that we knowingly, or consciously do; but we can be so consumed with being “the man” or the one in charge, that we forget that our influence on others can almost over power our desire to see others grow toward Christ and not us.
Does Christ take up a slot on a list of things within our lives? Or is Christ the center of your life? Does your life revolve around Christ? or does He make up a small percentage of your daily life?
