April 11, 2023

Have you changed from pleasing the world to pleasing God? I know that it's hard to stop caring about what others think of you, but that's precisely God's expectation of us. Once we go from feeling obligated to people to becoming bound to God, it will result in people becoming naturally drawn to us because of the confidence we exude from our loyalty to Him. We must learn to trust Him with our lives, and He will surround us with His people, those who are like-minded and have also set out to please God. In Paul's letter to the Galatians, he doesn't mince words when he calls them out, telling them that he wouldn't be a servant of Christ if he were still trying to please man. Trying to please man will often result in sinful behavior. Assess yourself and make sure your actions match God's expectations of your life. If you're unsure what that is, open up your Bible; He makes it clear in His word.

For 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
