" For our appeal does not spring from error or impurity or any attempt to deceive,
but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not to please man, but to please God who tests our hearts. For we never came with words of flattery, as you know, nor with a pretext for greed—God is witness."1 Thessalonians 2:3-5 (ESV)
Am I preaching and teaching the truth? Am I living to please men or to please God? I think I am pleasing God but I want to know for sure. It is real uncomfortable at times when I speak the Word of God. It seems to sting and people react negative to the Truth. But God exhorts me to continue.
Abba Father, let me be pleasing to You and obeying You daily.- Amen!
