Galatians 1:10

“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.”

  • Be real with yourself about who you are devoted to above all others. If it is not Jesus Christ, there-in lies your problems! Your spouse cannot be first, your friends cannot be first, and you cannot place yourself first! It must be Christ! Man may give you approval, but God will give you a victorious life! Trying to please the majority will always mean that you are not trying to please Christ! You cannot serve both!
  • If your conversation about God is ever altered because of your discomfort, or because you are afraid of others discomfort, who are you trying to please?
  • Will the people you are around today dictate your witness for Christ, or will your heart for Christ, and your Christlike love for those around you, be so real that you must share the hope that you have in Jesus?
  • How would God describe your witness?

Job 1:8 “And the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, who fears God and turns away from evil?”

Philippians 1:27-28 “Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel, and not frightened in anything by your opponents. This is a clear sign to them of their destruction, but of your salvation, and that from God.”

Matthew 4:1

“Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.” The Holy Spirit may lead us to a place where we will be tempted, but He will not leave us there alone. Overcoming temptation strengthens us. Romans 8:28 “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”

Matthew 3:10

“The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.” A Christian, by claim only, is not a Christian. We must live a Jesus proclaiming life. What fruit are you producing in your Christian walk? What in your daily walk sets you apart from those who do not know Christ as their Savior? Do others want what you have because of the joy they see in your life?

Matthew 1:23

“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us) All other gifts are not relevant compared to the true Gift of Christmas. Jesus is the only gift we need, and the only essential gift. He is available to all who will receive Him, but no one will benefit from a gift they refuse.

Proverbs 31:30

“Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” There is nothing more beautiful than a Christlike woman. As a matter of fact, the beauty of everyone is directly proportional to their walk with Christ.

Proverbs 30:8-9

“Remove far from me falsehood and lying; give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with the food that is needful for me, lest I be full and deny you and say, “Who is the Lord?” or lest I be poor and steal and profane the name of my God.” Salvation is found in Jesus and Jesus alone! Are you willing to not be poor or rich as long as you are in fellowship with God? Is Jesus alone enough for you to be content? Matthew 6:31-33 “Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” 2 Corinthians 3:4-5 “Such is the confidence that we have through Christ toward God. Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God” Dear Lord – may I honor You with my life and may I be content in You and the path you have

Proverbs 30:5

“Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him.” Amazingly enough, we wonder why God will not let us see what He’s doing in the situations we find ourselves in, yet we are unwilling to open His written word. Invest your time, focus, mind, conversation, effort, and especially your heart in God’s word. No return on investment will ever compare. How much of His truth have you hidden in your heart to guide your life? Where else would you go and where else would you take refuge, other than God’s Word? Psalm 119:9-11 “How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word. With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.” Ephesians 6:17 “Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” Psalm 119:11 “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.” John 17:17
