MAN-PLEASER

Acts 5: 28 "We gave you strict orders not to teach in this name," he said. "Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us guilty of this man's blood."
29 Peter and the other apostles replied: "We must obey God rather than men!" NIV

************

Have you ever been like me,
Trying so hard to please man;
Trying to "fit in" some place,
Not even aware of God's plan?

So very sad…but true,
The carnal man in us;
Always wanting to "belong",
That's what causes all this fuss.

Man pleaser…or God pleaser,
Our choice every day;
Oh, for the conviction…deep within our hearts,
To choose God, and with His agenda…stay.

We walk the narrow path,
When we walk with our LORD;
The path least traveled,
With Him…in one accord.

Few there are who choose it,
The narrow way to go;
Who have a deep conviction,
Their Love for God…to show.

There's a price to be paid,
The cost is very high;
To be popular with man,
We must…our LORD deny.

We cannot have both,
Single-minded…we must be;
Going back and forth,
Not like our LORD…not He.

He set His face like a flint,
To Jerusalem…traveled He;
Knowing full-well what,
The price for Him…would be.(Mk. 10:33-34)

And, for the joy set before Him,
He endured the Cross;(Heb. 12:2)
The pain and humiliation,
He gladly endured…for us.

So, keep your vision single,
Double-minded…do not be;(James 1:8)
Walk, daily in our conviction,
God's Truth shall set us free.
