Glorify God • Magnify Him in this World!

God vs Man

Scripture
43 for they loved the approval of men rather than the approval of God.
John 12:43 NASB

Observation
You get a chance to make a public confession of what you believe. It’s your choice! You can choose to acknowledge God and what He has done in your life, or you can choose to go with the crowd.

This should be an easy decision. The reason it isn’t is because God doesn’t manifest Himself here in the flesh. What we experience with our 5 senses, seems to be more real. But I assure you, God is more real than anything you can see, feel, smell, etc…

God is Spirit. And those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and in truth.

Application
One day we will account for our lives. On that day, in front of the Judgement Seat of Christ, there won’t be anyone else with you. On that day, the approval of man won’t come in to play. The only thing that will matter is the approval of God through His Son, Jesus.

Live your life today, not worrying about what others will say. The world never gets it right anyway. God’s ways are always going to be counter to the world. Follow His Word and walk in the Spirit. Eternity is a long time.

Prayer
Lord, help us to not consider the thoughts and actions of man. Help us instead to come sider Your approval. Help us to know that this world is passing away. Whatever man can offer is so temporary. What You have for us is eternal.

Peace
Todd
