Losing Favour

Losing Favour

teshuva, jesus, God, love, obey, the wordDo not feel bad when people dislike you for standing up for what you believe. What people do not understand they always reject.

There is no way you would seek to please God and be a “famous Amos” in this world. If you want popularity in the world, then you certainly won’t be a God-pleaser.  So then you have to make up your mind what you really want to be, a people pleaser gaining popularity with the world or a God-pleaser, gaining popularity in the kingdom.

Apostle Paul was one who was ready to lose favour with men if it meant jeopardizing his favour with God; he knew that being a bond- servant of God meant he would lose favour with the world. Are you willing to risk losing favour with men, will you step out and be that person God has called you to be even if it means losing your friends, job or even family?

Now am I trying to win the favor of men, or of God? Do I seek to please men? If I were still seeking popularity with men, I should not be a bond-servant of Christ (the Messiah). Galatians 1:10 (AMP)

  1. Oh, oh! Ugochi, This is a hot topic! Pleasing God within the family is difficult enough, not to talk about choosing God over friends. I recently had a chat with my 14year-old daughter who was trying to understand why my ‘personal time’ with God is more important than everyone and everything! Well, everyone but not her… That took some time – much longer than when I told my husband the same! 😉 I thank God for the grace and believe that if my family understands, all others will just have to take their rightful places – well behind my God. Stay blessed!

    1. Amen! Grace IS what we need in order to maintain a great relationship with God.
