02 Jun Losing Favour
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)
