Do you seek the approval of men or God?


“For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.” Galatians 1:10

To be a servant of Christ and seek the approval of God means being faithful to Christ and to the teaching of God’s Word in all things (Matt. 28:18-20). Seeking the approval of men leads to compromising and explaining away the clear teaching of the Bible.

Keep me faithful to You and Your Word, O Christ, and grant that I do not yield one iota of the Bible’s teaching to gain the approval of men. Amen.
