Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ. Galatians 1:10
Who is your master, society or Jesus?
Yes Jesus is our Saviour but He is also our best friend.
People develop relationship with those who have the same dispositions as them.
So someone who is a baseball fanatic would not be friends with someone who would rather spend their time at the ballet.
So too it is with your relationship with Christ.
You cannot be a pig and a cat.
The pig wallows in filth and hates the sunlight.
The cat hates the filth and loves the sunlight.
The filth is the fleshly desire, the sunlight is Christs presence.
You cannot have one foot in the pig pen and one foot in the light.
This may mean you choose to please Christ rather than your parents or other relatives.
This will mean you have to give up your pig friends and associate with those the world deems “geeky” cats.
Prayer: Please Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) bless me to emulate my most cherished friend in all I do and say so that others may desire Your Divine friendship as well. I gratefully give thanks and ask for this blessing in Your loving name. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day
