Galatians 1:10 – For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.
Paul is basically saying here that if his main concern was to please others more than to please God, then he would not be a true servant of the Lord. You cannot please the desires of ungodly people without the disapproval of God. People today want to create their own truths so that they can satisfy their own pleasures and not have to be accountable for their actions. Those who serve the Lord are seekers of God’s truths and followers of those truths.
You want to please God, you want to do what is right in the eyes of the Lord. Pleasing others is a losing battle that no one can win in the long run. But, pleasing the Lord is accomplished by obeying His word and listening to His guidence given by the Holy Spirit. Your challenge this week is to not be a people pleaser and be a God pleaser. Do not compromise what you know is right in order to ‘fit in’ with others. God was well pleased with His beloved Son because Jesus always obeyed His Fathers wishes. You too are a beloved child of God, when you are in total obedience to your Heavenly Father. God bless you.
