I love God with all of my heart! I love people, because I know and understand that we are His creation. I love helping people to get to know God in a real and relevant way. There are just way to many people sitting in our churches that are playing games. When you love God and love people, then you want to help people for their blessing and God’s glory. It is a hard pill to swallow, that people who you love and are trying to help just won’t or can’t get it! If you are not careful, this can discourage, frustrate and get you off of the right path that you need to make sure that you stay on. Our job as servants of Christ is not to keep people happy. Our job as servants of Christ is to bring a smile to the face of our God.
The Truth Is: Some People Can’t Be Pleased! Listen to what Jesus had to say on the subject: “For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, ‘He has a demon. The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and “sinners.” But wisdom is proved right by all her children.” Luke 7:33-35
That is some strong words! Jesus is saying: John the Baptist came and was a strict observer of the rules and regulations and was falsely accused of having a demon. I came and lived life with you to show you the power of a life lived in the Spirit and you accused me of being a glutton, drunkard and friend of sinners. Ultimately – it does not matter what man’s opinion is. The big deal is God’s fact! Live right and your living will be proven right by the fruit that it produces!
You Are Not Alone! I know that many of you out there are struggling against negative, critical, pessimistic, destructive and unresponsive people, but Stay Faithful To God’s Calling No Matter What! Because you are bringing glory to God and blessing to others, even if people around you fail to realize or recognize it! God sees and God will reward!
