WHO ARE WE PLEASING?

April 10

In Luke 9:26 we see the contrast between a Christian’s reputation now in the eyes of those of the world (glory here) or the good reputation before God in the future (glory later).  Which one is it that we seek?  Every day we have a choice are we going to look good in the eyes of the world around us or please the one who died for us.  Most of the time we don’t think of it in that way.  But that is how it really is.  It is tough to be a Christian and to be excluded from many of the things that the world does even if it does not involve outright sinful behavior. Too many choose friendship with the world and therefore shame themselves and Jesus’ reputation.  When the world sees a Christian they expect us to be different and it is our Godly behavior that causes them to shun us.  Yes, it hurts to be excluded, but is what the world thinks about us more important than what Jesus does?  No, and until we make a stand to be what Jesus called us to be the world will never stand up and take notice of our differentness and hopefully want to trust Christ because it knows what we have is better.  Does your life and mine reflect the glory of Jesus?  What is that we will we hear when we see Jesus after we die?

“For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when He comes in His glory, and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. (Luke 9:26)
