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 ESV
You need faith to please God. Walk, act, and speak in faith.
When you seek to please man, you separate yourself from God.
What does it profit a man to gain the whole world but lose his soul?
Man’s approval separates you from the purpose of God!
If you seek man’s approval you will not go through the process of being conformed in His image.
Only God defines you and you have nothing to lose. To live is Christ, to die is gain.
Being approved by God means you walk in faith and when you walk in faith, you please God. Period.
Nothing is impossible for those who walk in faith!
I only want your approval. I surrender fully to your will. I know apart from you I can do nothing. Help me be pleasing to you.
In Jesus Name,
